Kinase cascade

Metabolism figure 19-4 Signal pathway of receptor-activated tyrosine kinase receptors. Activation of receptor-linked tyrosine kinases by cytokines, growth factors, and insulin induces receptor autophosph-orylation. The complex of GRB2 and the son of sevenless (SOS) guanine nucleotide-releasing protein is recruited to the plasma membrane by the receptor via SH2 domain-phosphotyrosine interaction. SOS activates raf kinase, which initiates a phosphorylation cascade, mitogen-activated protein (MAP) kinase-kinase, MAP-kinase, and p90rsk, leading to cellular effects on metabolism and cell growth.
