AKT1

  • Official Full Name

    RAC-alpha serine/threonine-protein kinase

  • Overview

    Akt(protein kinase B, PKB) is a serine/threonine protein kinase. Akt is activated by PI3 kinase, which is itself activated by tyrosine kinase (Thr308, Ser473). Akt/PKB controls vital cellular functions such as cell survival/apoptosis, cell cycle progression and glucose metabolism. It also acts down-stream from growth factors and hormones. Akt/PKB can inhibit cell cycle arrest by phosphorylating p21. Also, Akt/PKB may potentiate cell cycle progression through increased translation of cyclin D. Akt/PKB directly affects the apoptosis pathway by, for example, targeting the pro-apoptotic Bcl-2 related protein, BAD. It also can phosphorylate three kinases upstream of SAPK. The SAPK system consists of two groups of kinases, and JNK and p38 MAP kinase pathways. The SAPK pathway is an important target for Akt/PKB regulation to promote cell survival. Akt/PKB is able to regulate cell survival through transcriptional factors(Forkhead, nuclear factor-kB(NF-kB), Murine double minute 2(Mdm2)) that are responsible for pro- as well as anti-apoptotic genes. One of the first physiological targets of PKB to be identified was glycogen synthase kinase-3(GSK3), which has been associated with the control of many cellular processes, including glycogen and protein synthesis, and the modulation of transcription factor activity. The involvement of Akt in disease processes like malignancy, neurodegeneration and abnormal glucose metabolism has also been demonstrated.

Q&As (13)

Ask a question
Are there any drugs or agents that specifically target AKT1? 03/14/2023

Yes, several drugs and agents have been developed to specifically target AKT1. These include small molecule inhibitors that directly target the kinase activity of AKT1. Examples of AKT1 inhibitors currently under investigation or in clinical trials include MK-2206, ipatasertib, and capivasertib. These inhibitors aim to block the activation of AKT1 and disrupt its downstream signaling pathways.

Are there any inhibitors of AKT1 protein? 09/11/2022

Yes, there are inhibitors that specifically target the activity of AKT1 protein. Small molecule inhibitors, such as MK-2206 and GSK690693, have been developed to block AKT1 activation and downstream signaling. These inhibitors are being studied as potential therapeutic agents for cancer treatment. Additionally, certain natural compounds, including resveratrol and curcumin, have been reported to inhibit AKT1 activity and exhibit anti-tumor effects.

Are there any diseases associated with AKT1 protein mutations? 01/29/2022

Mutations in AKT1 have been implicated in certain diseases. For example, somatic mutations in AKT1 have been found in a subset of human cancers, such as breast, ovarian, and colorectal cancers. These mutations can lead to constitutive activation of AKT1, contributing to tumor development. Moreover, germline mutations in AKT1 have been linked to a rare genetic disorder called Proteus syndrome, characterized by asymmetric and progressive overgrowth of various tissues.

Can AKT1 be targeted in combination with other therapies for cancer treatment? 07/15/2021

Yes, combining AKT1 inhibitors with other therapies is being investigated as a potential strategy for cancer treatment. AKT1 inhibition can enhance the efficacy of conventional chemotherapy agents or targeted therapies. For example, combining AKT1 inhibitors with inhibitors of the phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K)/mTOR pathway, which upstream regulates AKT1, could provide a more comprehensive blockade of the pathway. Additionally, AKT1 inhibitors have also been tested in combination with immune checkpoint inhibitors to enhance immune response against tumors. Such combination approaches aim to improve treatment outcomes and overcome drug resistance mechanisms.

What are the potential downstream targets of AKT1 signaling? 05/14/2021

AKT1 signaling regulates numerous downstream targets involved in diverse cellular processes. Some of the well-known targets include the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR), which plays a role in protein synthesis and cell growth, and the pro-apoptotic protein Bad, which AKT1 phosphorylates to prevent apoptosis. AKT1 also phosphorylates and inactivates the transcription factor Forkhead box protein O (FOXO), which regulates genes involved in apoptosis, cell cycle arrest, and oxidative stress response. Other downstream targets of AKT1 include glycogen synthase kinase 3 (GSK3), nuclear factor-kappa B (NF-kB), and endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS), among others.

Can AKT1 protein be a potential therapeutic target for other conditions apart from cancer? 04/18/2021

Yes, AKT1 protein has the potential to be a therapeutic target for conditions beyond cancer. Due to its role in insulin signaling and glucose metabolism, targeting AKT1 activity could be beneficial in treating metabolic disorders such as type 2 diabetes. Strategies aimed at increasing AKT1 activity and sensitivity to insulin are being explored.

Can AKT1 mutations be targeted for therapeutic purposes? 11/16/2020

Targeting AKT1 mutations is an active area of research for therapeutic development. Due to the involvement of AKT1 in cancer progression, efforts are being made to develop specific inhibitors that can selectively target mutant AKT1 forms. Clinical trials are being conducted to investigate the efficacy of AKT inhibitors in patients harboring AKT1 mutations in various cancers. However, further research is still needed to fully understand the implications and potential therapeutic strategies for AKT1 mutations.

What are the functions of AKT1 protein? 07/12/2019

AKT1 protein is involved in numerous cellular processes. Some of its key functions include promoting cell survival by inhibiting apoptosis (programmed cell death), regulating cell growth and proliferation, and participating in glucose metabolism. It is also involved in the regulation of protein synthesis, cell cycle progression, DNA repair, and cellular migration.

Are there any natural compounds or dietary factors that can modulate AKT1 activity? 02/19/2019

Yes, certain natural compounds and dietary factors have been found to modulate AKT1 activity. For example, resveratrol, a polyphenol found in grapes and red wine, has been shown to inhibit AKT1 signaling and induce apoptosis in cancer cells. Curcumin, a compound found in turmeric, has also been reported to inhibit AKT1 activation and suppress tumor growth.

How is AKT1 protein activated? 11/19/2018

AKT1 protein is activated by a process called phosphorylation. When growth factor receptors, such as insulin receptors or receptor tyrosine kinases, are stimulated by their ligands, it triggers the activation of phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K). PI3K then converts phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate (PIP2) into phosphatidylinositol 3,4,5-trisphosphate (PIP3). PIP3 acts as a second messenger and recruits AKT1 to the cell membrane.

Can AKT1 mutations contribute to drug resistance in cancer treatment? 02/06/2018

Yes, AKT1 mutations can contribute to drug resistance in cancer treatment. Mutations in AKT1 can lead to constitutive activation of its signaling pathway, rendering cancer cells resistant to targeted therapies that rely on inhibiting AKT1. For example, tumors with activating mutations in AKT1 may not respond to AKT1 inhibitors. Additionally, mutations in AKT1 or its upstream regulators such as PI3K can bypass the inhibitory effects of targeted therapies.

How is AKT1 protein regulated? 12/30/2016

The activity of AKT1 protein is regulated through various mechanisms. In addition to phosphorylation, which activates AKT1, there are several factors that can modulate its activity. One important regulator is phosphatase and tensin homolog (PTEN), which dephosphorylates PIP3 and limits AKT1 activation. Other regulatory proteins, such as protein phosphatase 2A (PP2A) and protein kinase C (PKC), can also influence AKT1 activity by dephosphorylating or phosphorylating AKT1, respectively.

Are there any diseases or conditions linked to dysregulation of AKT1 protein? 11/27/2016

Dysregulation of AKT1 has been associated with various diseases and conditions. Apart from its prominent role in cancer, altered AKT1 signaling has been implicated in metabolic disorders such as diabetes and obesity. Reduced AKT1 activity is observed in insulin resistance, whereby insulin stimulation of AKT1-mediated glucose uptake is impaired. AKT1 dysregulation has also been linked to neurological disorders, including Alzheimer's disease and schizophrenia. Abnormal AKT1 signaling has been implicated in synaptic dysfunction, neuronal survival, and cognitive impairment associated with these conditions. Further research is needed to fully understand the mechanisms and implications of AKT1 dysregulation in these diseases.
