25999017 miR-130a inhibited the JNK pathway by targeting MAP3K12, contributing to its anti-apoptotic effect and the maintenance of diabetic endothelial progenitor cell function.
25341110 Data suggest that specific pharmacological inhibition of dual leucine zipper kinase (DLK, MAP3K12) may have therapeutic potential in multiple indications of neuronal degeneration.
21893036 these findings indicate that DLK participates in cell proliferation and/or survival, at least in part, by modulating the expression of cell cycle regulatory proteins.
21526495 The results confirm the significance of apoptosis deregulation in CLL, and suggest a possible relationship between ZIPK expression and the clinical course of the disease.

19730683 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
19675578 the DLK-ERK signaling pathway may act as a regulator of the interaction that occurs between Hsp27 and the cytoskeleton during the formation of the cornified cell envelope, a process conferring to the skin its crucial barrier function
19146952 Src-dependent tyrosine phosphorylation recombinant human DLK was important for regulation of its activity. DLK may have a role in PDGF signaling.
18995835 DAPK-ZIPK-L13a axis forms a unique regulatory module that first represses, then repermits inflammatory gene expression.
15695824 DLK is a signaling molecule implicated in the regulation of keratinocyte terminal differentiation and cornification
15611134 ZIPK is positively regulated by phosphorylation within its kinase domain and contains an inhibitory C-terminal domain that controls enzyme activity.
14697235 for the selective expression of ZPK gene, cell-specific negative regulatory element(s) which locate outside of the core promoter region repress the potent basic promoter activity
