JNK1: A protein kinase stimulated by UV light and Ha-Ras that binds and phosphorylates the c-Jun activation domain
The ultraviolet (UV) response of mammalian cells is characterized by a rapid and selective increase in gene expression mediated by AP-1 and NF-kappa B. The effect on AP-1 transcriptional activity… Expand
Identification of an oncoprotein- and UV-responsive protein kinase that binds and potentiates the c-Jun activation domain.
The activity of c-Jun is regulated by phosphorylation. Various stimuli including transforming oncogenes and UV light, induce phosphorylation of serines 63 and 73 in the amino-terminal activation… Expand
JNK is involved in signal integration during costimulation of T lymphocytes
T lymphocyte activation and interleukin-2 (IL-2) production require at least two signals, generated by phorbol ester (TPA) and Ca2+ ionophore or costimulation of the T cell receptor (TCR) and the… Expand
Fezl Is Required for the Birth and Specification of Corticospinal Motor Neurons
The molecular mechanisms controlling the differentiation of neural progenitors into distinct subtypes of neurons during neocortical development are unknown. Here, we report that Fezl is required for… Expand
c-Jun Can Recruit JNK to Phosphorylate Dimerization Partners via Specific Docking Interactions
Structurally related serine/threonine kinases recognize similar phosphoacceptor peptides in vitro yet in vivo, they phosphorylate distinct substrates. To understand the basis for this specificity, we… Expand
Roles of STAT3 in mediating the cell growth, differentiation and survival signals relayed through the IL-6 family of cytokine receptors
Members of the IL-6 cytokine family are involved in a variety of biological responses, including the immune response, inflammation, hematopoiesis, and oncogenesis by regulating cell growth, survival,… Expand

Targeted gene expression is a powerful approach to study the function of genes and cells in vivo. In Drosophila, the P element-mediated Gal4-UAS method has been successfully used for this purpose.… Expand
Two signals are necessary for cell proliferation induced by a cytokine receptor gp130: involvement of STAT3 in anti-apoptosis.
gp130 is a common signal transducer for the interleukin-6-related cytokines. To delineate the gp130-mediated growth signal, we established a series of pro-B cell lines expressing chimeric receptors… Expand
A central role for Stat3 in IL‐6‐induced regulation of growth and differentiation in M1 leukemia cells.
Interleukin‐6 (IL‐6) induces either differentiation or growth of a variety of cells. Little is known about the molecular basis of this cellular decision. The family of signal transducer and activator… Expand
A new group of conserved coactivators that increase the specificity of AP-1 transcription factors
THE Jun proteins are nuclear proteins that combine with Fos proteins to form a gene-regulatory protein, AP-1. They have highly conserved DNA-binding and dimerization domains, resulting in almost… Expand
