an oncogenic Ser/Thr kinase of the STE group. Activates IkappaB kinases, thus inducing the nuclear translocation of NF-kappaB. Promotes the production of TNF-alpha and IL-2 during T lymphocyte activation. Interacts with NFkB-p105. Overexpressed and amplified in breast tumors. Viral insertions induce rat lymphomas and mouse mammary carcinomas. Isolated as a transforming factor in two cell lines. Mediates LPS activation of macrophages. 2 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative initiation. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
