In the vascular wall, akt plays an important role in regulating the development of endothelial cells,...One concern, he said, is that specific drugs are being developed to inhibit akt in cancer patients to reduce progression of tumors, and that these drugs ma...

UCSD researchers discover variants of natural tumor suppressor

UCSD researchers had previously discovered that akt is hyperactivated, or elevated, in most cancers and PHLPP provides a mechan...

Molecular differences between early and advanced melanomas could provide new drug targets

The findings may have important implications for cancer therapy, as the akt pathway is also one of the most commonly activated in cancer, Chodosh said....

Spelling out cancer on the nanoscale

...ing a decrease in oncoprotein levels. The new nano-fluidic system was also tested on human tumors by measuring the levels of MYC, BCL2, ERK, and akt proteins in the lymph nodes obtained from patients with Burkitt’s, mantle cell, or follicular lymphoma. The nano-fluidic system reported that MYC was ...

Protein's role in regulating cell death sets direction for cancer research

...cell death in response to other challenges, including some chemotherapeutic drugs. This study showed that calpain contributes to the activation of akt and JNK, two key players in the signaling pathways that control cellular responses to different death stimuli. These discoveries suggest that calpain ...

Bedsores and bald hides: Novel roles revealed for a 'scaffolding' protein

...h K17. Cell growth resulting from the manufacture of new proteins is in part controlled by several protein catalysts, or enzymes, including two called akt and mTOR. The researchers found that cells lacking K17 also have a less active Akt/mTOR pathway, suggesting that K17 somehow interacts with Akt/mTOR t...

Mouse mimics chronic leukemia, will aid drug development

...n and found that the malignant mouse cells show many of the molecular characteristics of human CLL cells, such as expression of proteins called Bcl-2, akt and normal p53. The study also shows that the mouse disease mirrors CLL patients in its response to the drug fludarabine, including the developme...

Moffitt-USF head toward first human trials of anti-cancer drug that targets protein AKT

...ks only against tumors in which the cancer-causing akt protein is abundant and/or abnormally active. "These tumors are addicted to hyperactive akt and cannot survive without it," explains Saïd Sebt... to Sebti. "To our knowledge, this is the first akt inhibitor headed toward clinical trials," said Jin...

Mouse with designer liver has enhanced glucose tolerance, insulin response

... the function of Gab1 in normal liver cells is to promote signaling in the Erk pathway, which reduces insulin response signals flowing through IRS and akt proteins. "We propose that Gab1 acts as a negative regulator on insulin signal strength in the liver," said Dr. Feng. "In this work, by making a ne...
