BACKGROUND Akt/PKB is a serine/threonine kinase that has attracted much attention because of its central role in regulating cell proliferation, survival, motility and angiogenesis. Activation of Akt in breast cancer portends aggressive tumour behaviour, resistance to hormone-, chemo-, and radiotherapy-induced apoptosis and it is correlated with decreased(More)
The c-Myb gene encodes the p75(c-Myb) isoform and less-abundant proteins generated by alternatively spliced transcripts. Among these, the best known is p(c-Mybex9b), which contains 121 additional amino acids between exon 9 and 10, in a domain involved in protein-protein interactions and negative regulation. In hematopoietic cells, expression of p(c-Mybex9b)(More)
