MAP2K1, or mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase 1, is a dual specificity protein kinase which acts as an essential component of the MAP kinase signal transduction pathway. MAP kinases, also known as extracellular signal-regulated kinases (ERKs), act as an integration point for multiple biochemical signals. MAP2K1 is located upstream of MAP kinases and stimulates the enzymatic activity of MAP kinases upon wide variety of extra- and intracellular signals. MAP2K1 is thought to be involved in binding of extracellular ligands such as growth factors, cytokines and hormones to their cell-surface receptors, as well as cellular processes such as proliferation, differentiation, transcription regulation and development.

MAP2K1 was one of numerous potential early detection biomarkers specific to triple-negative breast cancer in multiple pathways identified.
- Discovery and preliminary confirmation of novel early detection biomarkers for triple-negative breast cancer using preclinical plasma samples from the Women's Health Initiative observational study.
- Plasma biomarker profiles differ depending on breast cancer subtype but RANTES is consistently increased.
