Abstract: Abstract: Raf kinase inhibitory protein (RKIP) is a member of the phosphatidylethanolamine-binding protein (PEBP) superfamily, which plays vital roles in many physiological processes and regulates MAPK, GPCR and NF-κB signaling pathways. Abnormal signaling pathways will promote tumorigenesis and development. It has been reported that RKIP modulates tumors at several stages including tumorigenesis, development, metastasis and therapeutic response. By now RKIP has been considered as a new biomarker for cancer diagnosis. Therefore, it is highly significant to study the structure and function of RKIP, which helps us understand the structural basis and the molecular mechanism of RKIP-modulated signal pathways, and facilitate the drug development against diseases caused by abnormal signal transduction. This article reviewed the structural characteristics, biological functions of RKIP and its relationship with tumor.
