MLK4 or mixed lineage kinase 4 belongs to the superfamily of MAP kinase kinase kinases (MAP3K1) which contain both ser/thr and tyr kinases activity in their catalytic domains. The structure of this kinase family incorporates an N-terminal Src homology (SH3) domain, followed by the kinase domain, a leucine zipper region, and a CDC42 /RAC -interactive binding (CRIB) motif, but divergent C-terminal regions. MLK4 is highly expressed in kidney and pancreas (1). MLK4 is a negative regulator of TLR4 (2).
