Project is carried out within the “Sonata Bis” programme of the National Science Centre.

Project description:

MLK4 is a serine/threonine kinase that plays a vital role in cellular processes, including proliferation, differentiation, and migration of cells. We have recently proven that MLK4 is highly expressed in breast carcinoma and that it contributes to the invasive phenotype of breast cancer cells. In our new project, we will evaluate the molecular mechanisms of MLK4 action and look for ways of MLK4 inhibition.
