C-Jun-amino-terminal kinase-interacting protein 3 - Q9UPT6 (JIP3_HUMAN)


Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

The JNK-interacting protein (JIP) group of scaffold proteins selectively mediates JNK signaling by aggregating specific components of the MAPK cascade to form a functional JNK signaling module (PubMed:12189133). May function as a regulator of vesicle transport, through interactions with the JNK-signaling components and motor proteins (By similarity). Promotes neuronal axon elongation in a kinesin- and JNK-dependent manner. Activates cofilin at axon tips via local activation of JNK, thereby regulating filopodial dynamics and enhancing axon elongation. Its binding to kinesin heavy chains (KHC), promotes kinesin-1 motility along microtubules and is essential for axon elongation and regeneration. Regulates cortical neuronal migration by mediating NTRK2/TRKB anterograde axonal transport during brain development (By similarity). Acts as an adapter that bridges the interaction between NTRK2/TRKB and KLC1 and drives NTRK2/TRKB axonal but not dendritic anterograde transport, which is essential for subsequent BDNF-triggered signaling and filopodia formation (PubMed:21775604).

Subunit Structure
Forms homo- or heterooligomeric complexes. The central region of MAPK8IP3 interacts with the C-terminal of MAPK8IP2 but not MAPK8IP1. Binds specific components of the JNK signaling pathway namely MAPK8/JNK1, MAPK9/JNK2 and MAPK10/JNK3 to the N-terminal region, MAP2K4/MKK4 and MAP2K7/MKK7 to the central region and MAP3K11 to the C-terminal region. Binds the TPR motif-containing C-terminal of kinesin light chain, KLC1. Pre-assembled MAPK8IP1 scaffolding complexes are then transported as a cargo of kinesin, to the required subcellular location. Interacts with ROCK1 and this interaction is enhanced by ultraviolet-B (UVB) radiation. Interacts with SH3RF2 (By similarity). Interacts with NTRK2/TRKB and NTRK3/TRKC (By similarity). UniProt

Data origin/color codes
The vertical color bar on the left side indicates data provenance.
Data in green originates from UniProtKB  
Variation data (sourced from UniProt) shows non-genetic variation from the ExPASy   and dbSNP   websites.
Data in yellow originates from Pfam  , by interacting with the HMMER3 web site  
Data in purple originates from Phosphosite  .
Data in orange originates from the SCOP   (version 1.75) and SCOPe   (version 2.04) classifications.
Data in grey has been calculated using BioJava  . Protein disorder predictions are based on JRONN (Troshin, P. and Barton, G. J. unpublished), a Java implementation of RONN  
  • Red: potentially disorderd region
  • Blue: probably ordered region.
Hydropathy has been calculated using a sliding window of 15 residues and summing up scores from standard hydrophobicity tables.
  • Red: hydrophobic
  • Blue: hydrophilic.
Data in lilac represent the genomic exon structure projected onto the UniProt sequence.
Data in blue originates from PDB
  • Secstruc: Secondary structure projected from representative PDB entries onto the UniProt sequence.
Sequence Mismatches It is now possible to see information about expression tags, cloning artifacts, and many other details related to sequence mismatches.
Icons represent a number of different sequence modifications that can be observed in PDB files. For example the 'T' icon T represents expression tags that have been added to the sequence. The 'E' icon E represents an engineered mutation. However, besides these two, there are many other icons. For more information about the meaning and exact position of a sequence modification, move the cursor over the icon.
