Dynamic localization of Fus3 mitogen-activated protein kinase is necessary to evoke appropriate responses and avoid cytotoxic effects.

Cellular responses to many external stimuli are mediated by mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPKs). We investigated whether dynamic intracellular movement contributes to the spatial and temporal characteristics of the responses elicited by a prototypic MAPK, Fus3, in the mating pheromone response pathway in budding yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae… CONTINUE READING
