The protein kinase encoded by the Akt proto-oncogene is a target of the PDGF-activated phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase
The serine/threonine protein kinase encoded by the Akt proto-oncogene is catalytically inactive in serum-starved primary and immortalized fibroblasts. Here we show that Akt and the Akt-related kinaseExpand

AKT/PKB and other D3 phosphoinositide-regulated kinases: kinase activation by phosphoinositide-dependent phosphorylation.
The protein kinase Akt/PKB is activated via a multistep process by a variety of signals. In the early steps of this process, PI-3 kinase-generated D3-phosphorylated phosphoinositides bind the Akt PHExpand

Akt Forms an Intracellular Complex with Heat Shock Protein 90 (Hsp90) and Cdc37 and Is Destabilized by Inhibitors of Hsp90 Function*
Hsp90 is a chaperone required for the conformational maturation of certain signaling proteins including Raf, cdk4, and steroid receptors. Natural products and synthetic small molecules that bind toExpand

The protein kinase Akt induces epithelial mesenchymal transition and promotes enhanced motility and invasiveness of squamous cell carcinoma lines.
Epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) is an important process during development and oncogenesis by which epithelial cells acquire fibroblast-like properties and show reduced intercellular adhesionExpand

TNF-alpha induction by LPS is regulated posttranscriptionally via a Tpl2/ERK-dependent pathway.
Tpl2 knockout mice produce low levels of TNF-alpha when exposed to lipopolysaccharide (LPS) and they are resistant to LPS/D-Galactosamine-induced pathology. LPS stimulation of peritoneal macrophagesExpand

A retroviral oncogene, akt, encoding a serine-threonine kinase containing an SH2-like region.
The v-akt oncogene codes for a 105-kilodalton fusion phosphoprotein containing Gag sequences at its amino terminus. Sequence analysis of v-akt and biochemical characterization of its product revealedExpand

The kinase Akt1 controls macrophage response to lipopolysaccharide by regulating microRNAs.
MicroRNAs regulated by lipopolysaccharide (LPS) target genes that contribute to the inflammatory phenotype. Here, we showed that the protein kinase Akt1, which is activated by LPS, positivelyExpand

Cytoplasmic relocalization and inhibition of the cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor p27Kip1 by PKB/Akt-mediated phosphorylation in breast cancer
The cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor p27kip1 is a putative tumor suppressor for human cancer. The mechanism underlying p27kip1 deregulation in human cancer is, however, poorly understood. WeExpand

The PI 3-kinase/Akt signaling pathway delivers an anti-apoptotic signal.
Serum and certain growth factors have the ability to inhibit programmed cell death (apoptosis) and promote survival. The mechanism by which growth factors deliver an anti-apoptotic signal and theExpand
