The inflammatory response in the brain is closely associated with the pathogenesis of degenerative neurological disorders. A role for the p38 stress-activated protein kinase/MAPK-activated protein kinase 2 (MK2) axis in inflammation and apoptosis is well documented. Here, we provide evidence that neurodegeneration can be prevented by eliminating MK2. In(More)
Mitogen-activated protein kinase-activated protein kinase (MK)2 is one of several downstream targets of p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase and has a well documented role in inflammation. Here, we describe a possible new function of MK2. We show that triggering depolarization by potassium chloride or increasing the cellular cAMP by forskolin treatment led(More)
