DESCRIPTION
Also known as JIP3_RAT, Mapk8ip3, Jip3. The JNK-interacting protein (JIP) group of scaffold proteins selectively mediates JNK signaling by aggregating specific components of the MAPK cascade to form a functional JNK signaling module. May function as a regulator of vesicle transport, through interactions with the JNK-signaling components and motor proteins (By similarity). Promotes neuronal axon elongation in a kinesin- and JNK-dependent manner. Activates cofilin at axon tips via local activation of JNK, thereby regulating filopodial dynamics and enhancing axon elongation. Its binding to kinesin heavy chains (KHC), promotes kinesin-1 motility along microtubules and is essential for axon elongation and regeneration. Regulates cortical neuronal migration by mediating NTRK2/TRKB anterograde axonal transport during brain development. Acts as an adapter that bridges the interaction between NTRK2/TRKB and KLC1 and drives NTRK2/TRKB axonal but not dendritic anterograde transport, which is essential for subsequent BDNF-triggered signaling and filopodia formation. Forms homo- or heterooligomeric complexes. The central region of MAPK8IP3 interacts with the C-terminal of MAPK8IP2 but not MAPK8IP1. Binds specific components of the JNK signaling pathway namely MAPK8/JNK1, MAPK9/JNK2 and MAPK10/JNK3 to the N-terminal region, MAP2K4/MKK4 and MAP2K7/MKK7 to the central region and MAP3K11 to the C-terminal region. Binds the TPR motif-containing C-terminal of kinesin light chain, KLC1. Pre-assembled MAPK8IP1 scaffolding complexes are then transported as a cargo of kinesin, to the required subcellular location. Interacts with ROCK1 and this interaction is enhanced by ultraviolet-B (UVB) radiation (By similarity). Interacts with SH3RF2 (PubMed:22128169). Interacts with NTRK3/TRKC (By similarity). Interacts with NTRK2/TRKB (PubMed:21775604).
