Reduction in Raf kinase inhibitor protein expression is associated with increased Ras-extracellular signal-regulated kinase signaling in melanoma cell lines.


Mutations in the Raf signaling pathway are known to play a pivotal role in the progression of malignant melanoma. In this study, we provide evidence that the Raf-1 kinase inhibitory protein (RKIP) and its effects on Raf-1-mediated activation of mitogen-activated protein/extracellular signal-regulated kinase kinase are important for the metastatic potential… (More)
