a member of the MAPKAPK family of protein kinases. It is phosphorylated and activated by p38 in response to cytokines, stress and chemotactic factors.MAPKAPK-2 is apparently a direct target of p38 MAPK. HSP27 is one of its in vivo substrates. Two transcript variants encoding two different isoforms have been described. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
