There is relatively little known about expression and activation of p38 mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPKs) through G protein-linked, seven-transmembrane-spanning (STM) receptors in mammalian smooth muscle. To investigate the role of p38 MAPK in smooth muscle, we cloned and sequenced the p38 MAPK expressed in canine smooth muscles. A full-length clone(More)
