The stimulation of cell proliferation by insulin like growth factor IGF-1 has previously been shown to depend on activation of voltage gated K(+) channels. The signaling involved in activation of voltage gated K(+) channel Kv1.3 includes the phosphatidylinositol-3 (PI3) protein kinase, 3-phosphoinositide dependent protein kinase PDK1 and the serum and(More)
Generation of memory is enhanced during stress, an effect attributed to stimulation of neuronal learning by adrenal glucocorticoids. The glucocorticoid-dependent genes include the serum- and glucocorticoid-inducible kinase SGK1. SGK1 is activated through the phosphatidylinositol 3 kinase (PI3-kinase) pathway by growth factors such as insulin-like growth(More)
PURPOSE The serum- and glucocorticoid-inducible kinase SGK1 regulates several epithelial channels and transporters, the related protein kinase B (PKB) regulates glucose transport. SGK1 is expressed in the brain and could thus regulate glial and/or neuronal transport processes. The present study explores whether SGK1 is expressed in the retina and whether it(More)
BACKGROUND Erufosine is a promising anticancer drug that increases the efficacy of radiotherapy in glioblastoma cell lines in vitro. Moreover, treatment of nude mice with repeated intraperitoneal or subcutaneous injections of Erufosine is well tolerated and yields drug concentrations in the brain tissue that are higher than the concentrations required for(More)
Dissemination of high-grade gliomas (WHO IV) has been investigated poorly so far. We conducted an extensive analysis of the characteristics, treatments and outcomes of the glioblastoma multiforme (GBM)/gliosarcoma (GS) patients with central nervous system (CNS) metastases reported in literature until April 2013. PubMed and Web of Science searches for(More)
The serum- and glucocorticoid-dependent kinase SGK1 is regulated by alterations of cell volume, whereby cell shrinkage increases and cell swelling decreases the transcription, expression and activity of SGK1. The kinase is expressed in all human tissues studied including the brain. The present study was performed to localize the sites of SGK1 transcription(More)
Surface expression of the glial glutamate transporter EAAT1 is stimulated by insulin-like growth factor 1 through activation of phosphatidylinositol-3-kinase. Downstream targets include serum and glucocorticoid-sensitive kinase isoforms SGK1, SGK2 and SGK3, and protein kinase B. SGK1 regulates Nedd4-2, a ubiquitin ligase that prepares cell membrane proteins(More)
The phosphoinositide-dependent kinase PDK1 activates the serum- and glucocorticoid-inducible kinase isoforms SGK1, SGK2, and SGK3 and protein kinase B, which in turn are known to up-regulate a variety of sodium-coupled transporters. The present study was performed to explore the role of PDK1 in amino acid transport. As mice completely lacking functional(More)
Mineralocorticoids stimulate Na(+) reabsorption and K(+) secretion in principal cells of connecting tubule and collecting duct. The involved ion channels are ENaC and ROMK1, respectively. In Xenopus oocytes, the serum and glucocorticoid-sensitive kinase SGK1 has been shown to increase ENaC activity by enhancing its abundance in the plasma membrane. With the(More)
Phosphatidylinositol 3 kinase (PI3-kinase) is activated during and is required for hippocampal glutamate receptor-dependent long-term potentiation. It mediates the delivery of AMPA receptors to the neuronal surface. Among the downstream targets of PI3-kinase are three members of the serum- and glucocorticoid-inducible kinase family, SGK1, SGK2 and SGK3. In(More)
