Activation of Akt by growth factors is a multistep process. Here, we provide evidence that tyrosine kinase Src is directly associated with Akt through the interaction between its SH3 domain and a conserved proline-rich motif (PXXP) in the C-terminal regulatory region of Akt. Substitution of the proline residues Pro-424 and Pro-427 by alanines results in loss of Akt activity and phosphorylation induced by the epidermal growth factor (EGF), possibly because these mutations disrupt the interaction… CONTINUE READING
