PIP3-Independent Activation of TorC2 and PKB at the Cell's Leading Edge Mediates Chemotaxis


BACKGROUND Studies show that high phosphotidylinositol 3,4,5-trisphosphate (PIP(3)) promotes cytoskeletal rearrangements and alters cell motility and chemotaxis, possibly through activation of protein kinase Bs (PKBs). However, chemotaxis can still occur in the absence of PIP(3), and the identities of the PIP(3)-independent pathways remain unknown… (More)
