Phosphorylated MAPKs phosphorylate ATF-2 (R-HSA-168053) [Homo sapiens]

Reaction
Summation

At the beginning of this reaction, 1 molecule of 'ATP', and 1 molecule of 'ATF-2' are present. At the end of this reaction, 1 molecule of 'ADP', and 1 molecule of 'ATF-2-P' are present.

This reaction is mediated by the 'protein kinase activity' of 'MAPK1-P'.

the Raf√Ę‚?¨‚??MEK√Ę‚?¨‚??ERK pathway induces phosphorylation of ATF2 Thr71, whereas subsequent ATF2 Thr69 phosphorylation requires the Ral√Ę‚?¨‚??RalGDS√Ę‚?¨‚??Src√Ę‚?¨‚??p38 pathway. Cooperation between ERK and p38 was found to be essential for ATF2 activation by these mitogens; the activity of p38 and JNK/SAPK in growth factor-stimulated fibroblasts is insufficient to phosphorylate ATF2 Thr71 or Thr69 + 71 significantly by themselves, while ERK cannot dual phosphorylate ATF2 Thr69 + 71 efficiently.
