Abstract. All currently sequenced stress-activated protein kinases (SAPKs), extracellular signal-regulated kinases (ERKs), and other mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPKs) were analyzed by sequence alignment, phylogenetic tree construction, and three-dimensional structure modeling in order to classify members of the MAPK family. Based on this analysis the MAPK family was divided into three subgroups (SAPKs, ERKs, and MAPK3) that consist of at least nine subfamilies. Members of a given… Expand

TLDR
Analysis of partial MAPK sequences from full length, truncated cDNAs and expressed sequence tags revealed the presence of two new subfamilies in the plant MAPK superfamily, and signature sequences valid for the superfamily of plantMAPKs and each subfamily were derived and should help in future classification of novel MAPKs.

Identification, structure, and phylogenetic relationships of a mitogen-activated protein kinase homologue from the parasitic protist Entamoeba histolytica.
TLDR
This is the first study of any member of the MAPK signaling system in this organism and suggests that activators and substrates for EhMAPK may be to some extent divergent from that of the ERKs of the mammalian host. Expand
Identification of new molecular hallmarks for YSAPK MAPKs: Application for cloning strategies in different fungal filamentous species

Pathway Analysis of Highly Conserved Mitogen Activated Protein Kinases (MAPKs)
TLDR
An attempt has been made to determine the participation of a particular MAPK in one specific pathway, based on evolutionary relationships, the specificity of MAPK 1 and 3 in growth factor pathway, MAPK 8, 9, 10 in stress and MAPK 11, 12, 13 in inflammatory pathway are emphasized. Expand
In silico pathway analysis of MAPKs and computational investigation of bipyrazole analogues as novel p38alpha MAPK inhibitors
TLDR
A computational mechanism of inhibition by bipyrazole analogues is elucidated, for the first time, as promising inhibitors of p38alpha MAPK. Expand
Plant MAP kinase kinase kinases structure, classification and evolution.
TLDR
A relationship analysis, which included animal, fungal and plant MAP3Ks, revealed a high degree of diversity among this biochemically established set of proteins, thus suggesting a range of biological functions. Expand
Toxoplasma gondii Expresses Two Mitogen-Activated Protein Kinase Genes That Represent Distinct Protozoan Subfamilies
TLDR
The phylogenetic analysis of a collection of protozoan and metazoan MAPK genes in relation to ERK8-like genes demonstrates that an ERK 8-like family, which includes the pzMAPK2 subfamily, is represented across a large variety of eukaryotic kingdoms and is evolutionarily very distant from other MAPK families.

Stressing the role of MAP kinases in mitogenic stimulation
TLDR
A subgroup of the plant MAPKs, containing the alfalfa MMK3 and tobacco NTF6, are only active in mitotic cells and their localisation to the cell plate suggests a role in cytokinesis, and NPK1 appears to have a second role in repression of auxin-induced gene expression. Expand

TLDR
It is concluded that sponges, the oldest and most simple multicellular animals, utilize the conserved p38 MAPK signaling pathway, known to be involved in stress and immune (inflammatory) responses in higher animals. Expand
