MEK5, also known as MAP2K5, phosphorylates ERK5 (MAPK7) in signaling pathways involved in stress-induced apoptosis, neuronal survival, cardiac development, and angiogenesis.1,2 BIX02189 is a potent inhibitor of both MEK5 and ERK5 (IC50s = 1.5 and 59 nM, respectively), preventing transcriptional activation of the downstream target MEF2C.3 It minimally inhibits a panel of related kinases, including MEK1/2 and ERK1/2.3 BIX02189 blocks sorbitol-induced phosphorylation of ERK5, without affecting phosphorylation of ERK1/2, in HeLa cells.3 It has been used to investigate the roles of MEK5/ERK5 signaling in nerve growth factor-mediated neurite outgrowth and myeloid cell differentiation.
