erk1 and erk2 cascade Gene Set

Dataset GO Biological Process Annotations
Category structural or functional annotations
Type biological process
Description An intracellular protein kinase cascade containing at least ERK1 or ERK2 (MAPKs), a MEK (a MAPKK) and a MAP3K. The cascade can also contain two additional tiers: the upstream MAP4K and the downstream MAP Kinase-activated kinase (MAPKAPK). The kinases in each tier phosphorylate and activate the kinases in the downstream tier to transmit a signal within a cell. (Gene Ontology, GO_0070371)
