MAP kinase phosphatase-3 (MKP-3) is transcriptionally and post-translationally up-regulated by hCG and modulates cAMP-induced p21 expression in MA-10 Leydig cells.


Luteinizing hormone (LH) activates ERK1/2, MAP kinases (MAPKs) necessary for its action on steroidogenesis and cell proliferation, and also induces MAPK phosphatase-1 (MKP-1), which rapidly dephosphorylates nuclear ERK1/2. MKP-3 is a cytoplasmic ERK-phosphatase up-regulated by proliferative stimuli. MKP-3 also dephosphorylates transcription factor FOXO1… (More)
