c-Jun NH2-terminal kinase 2 is required for Ras transformation independently of activator protein 1.


Active Ras oncogene is expressed in approximately 30% of human cancers. Yet, very little is known about the molecular mechanisms responsible for its transforming potential. Here, we show that H-Ras-mediated transformation requires isoform 2 of the c-Jun-NH(2)-terminal kinase (JNK). H-Ras-transduced JNK2-deficient (Jnk2-/-) murine embryonic fibroblasts (MEFs… (More)
