[MAPK signaling pathway and erectile dysfunction]

The MAPK signaling pathway plays a key role in the differentiation, proliferation and apoptosis of cells, and its family members mainly include extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK), stress-activated protein kinase (JNK), and p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase (p38MAPK). Recent studies have shown that the ERK, JNK and p38MAPK signaling pathways are closely associated with the development and progression of erectile dysfunction (ED). This review focuses on the correlation between the MAPK signaling pathway and ED.

MAPK信号通路在细胞的分化、增殖及凋亡等过程中起着十分关键的作用。MAPK家族的信号通路主要包括细胞外信号调节蛋白激酶(ERK),应激活化蛋白激酶(JNK)、p38丝裂原活化蛋白激酶(p38MAPK)等。从目前的研究来看,ERK、JNK、p38MAPK 3条信号通路与ED的发生发展紧密联系。本文根据相关文献对MAPK信号通路与勃起功能障碍作一综述。.
