The 27-kDa heat shock protein (Hps27) is phosphorylated in a way that appears to regulate antioxidant defenses by mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK)-activated protein kinase 2 (MK2), a component of the p38(MAPK) pathway. To investigate the role of Hsp27 in cellular resistance to oxidant stress, lung cells (A549) were incubated with MAPK inhibitors to(More)
