Biochem/physiol Actions

Protein Target: Akt1/PKBα

Target Sub-Family: AGC

Akt, also known as protein Kinase B (PKB), is a crucial protein involved in various cell signaling pathways. It modifies and controls the activities of numerous proteins involved in a wide range of cellular and physiological processes. Some of these processes include cell survival, apoptosis, cell proliferation, transcription, cell migration, and metabolism. Akt also helps in influencing angiogenesis, and normal development of embryos. Akt regulates cell survival through the phosphorylation of mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase kinase 5 (MAP3K5), which is involved in the cellular apoptotic response. The Akt occupies a pivotal position in the phosphoinositide 3-kinase-protein kinase B-mammalian target of rapamycin (PI3K-PKB-mTOR) signaling pathway. Genetic mutations occurring upstream of Akt in this cascade can result in uncontrolled cell proliferation and the development of cancer. In addition abberent Akt activation is associated with the development of type-2 diabetes.
