MAP kinase 6
Curated Summary
Encodes a MAP kinase induced by pathogens, ethylene biosynthesis, oxidative stress and osmotic stress.Also involved in ovule development. Homozygous mutants in a MPK3 heterozygous background are female sterile due to defects in integument development.MPK6 appears to be associated with the microsomal compartment and may be involved in mediating secretory processes.
