Inactivating mutations in the tumor suppressor gene phosphatase and tensin homologue on chromosome 10 (PTEN) result in elevated levels of phosphatidylinositol (3,4,5)-trisphosphate, activation of protein kinase B (PKB), and protection against apoptotic insults such as withdrawal of survival factors. Protection may arise through the inhibition of the pro-apoptotic protein Bim, which is normally repressed by a PKB-dependent mechanism. Here we show that PTEN-/- immortalized mouse embryonic… CONTINUE READING
