a dual-specificity protein kinase of the STE7 kinase family. Phosphorylated and activated by Raf, Mos and Cot kinases. Phosphorylates a Thr and a Tyr residue in a Thr-Glu-Tyr sequence located in the activation loop of ERK1 and ERK2. An essential component of MAP kinase signal transduction pathways involved in many cellular processes such as proliferation, differentiation, transcription regulation and development. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
