Activation of MEK 1/2 and p42/44 MAPK by angiotensin II in hepatocyte nucleus and their potentiation by ethanol
Alcohol Volume 43, Issue 4, June 2009, Pages 315-322

Hepato-subcellular effect of angiotensin II (Ang II) and ethanol on the p42/44 mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) and MAPK kinase (MEK 1/2) was investigated in the nucleus of rat hepatocytes.

These results suggest that Ang II-mediated accumulation of phospho-p42/44 MAPK in the hepatocyte nucleus involves MEK 1/2-dependent activation and this effect is potentiated by ethanol.
