Background: MAPKAPK5 / MK5 is together with MAPKAPK2 /MK2 and MAPKAPK3 /MK3 part of the family of MAPK-activated protein kinases (MAPKAPK) and serves as targets for MAPK. Whereas MK2 and MK3 are activated by p38 MAPK MK5 is phosphorylated by ERK3 and ERK4 making MK5 unique among the MAPKAPKs. MK5 has a unique C-terminal extension of ∼ 75 amino acids, but lacks the N-terminal Pro-rich motif present in MK2 and MK3. MK5 contains putative cAMP-dependent protein kinase (PKA) phosphoacceptor sites, and it was shown that PKA phosphorylates MK5 at Ser-115. Activated MK5 can in turn phosphorylate HSP27 and allows F-actin remodeling, affect the transcriptional activity of HSP1,  and phosphorylate Septin8 (SEPT8), a small GTPase involved in neurosecretion and neuroplasticity.
