Mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase (sic) is a kinase enzyme which phosphorylates mitogen-activated protein kinase. It is also known as MAP2K. It is classified as EC 2.7.12.2.

There are seven genes:

The activators of p38 (MKK3 and MKK4), JNK (MKK4), and ERK (MEK1 and MEK2) define independent MAP kinase signal transduction pathways.[1]
