Targeted gene disruption studies have established that JNK-c-Jun signaling plays a vital role in stress-induced apoptosis. The oncogenic phosphatase Wip1 acts as an important regulator in DNA damage pathway by dephosphorylating a spectrum of proteins including p53, p38, Chk1, Chk2, and ATM. In this study we show that Wip1 negatively regulates the activation of MKK4-JNK-c-Jun signaling during stress-induced apoptosis. The loss of Wip1 function sensitizes mouse embryonic fibroblasts to stress-induced apoptosis via the activation of both p38- ATF2 and JNK-c-Jun signaling. Here we reveal that Wip1 has dual roles in alternatively regulating stress- and DNA damageinduced apoptosis through p38/JNK MAPKs and p38/p53-dependent pathways, respectively. Our results point to Wip1 as a general regulator of apoptosis, which further supports its role in tumorigenesis. © 2009 by The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Inc.||Source Title:||Journal of Biological Chemistry||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/101035||ISSN:||00219258||DOI:||10.1074/jbc.M109.007823|
