Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Stress-activated protein kinase (SAPK) cascades control a variety of cellular activities such as survival, differentiation and apoptosis. Recent studies have revealed that SAPKs play important roles in the regulation of homeostasis of skin. This report focuses on SAPK-mediated signal transduction and provides advanced findings on the physiological roles of SAPKs in skin.
