Dissecting Diabetes - Is protein AKT2 the cause of type 2 diabetes?

"This is a big step forward in dissecting the pathways and mechanisms of diabetes. It is fascinating." Yes the researchers of Yale University have seen a break through in the identification of the missing protein in the adult onset Type II Diabetes mellitus. They have discovered that...

Fox Chase researchers uncover one force behind the MYC oncogene in many cancers

...s again. From this, Testa and Xu were able to gain a broader understanding of how cancers involving AKT2, DLX5 and MYC might develop. A mutation in akt2 may act as a "first hit" that makes the inversion on mouse chromosome 6, which contains the DLX5 gene, more likely. When the inversion happens, the ce...

...of glucose in the bloodstream. Therapies directed at inhibiting PHLPP1 could be used to treat diabetes; in essence, removing the 'brake' and allowing akt2 to be more functional and allow better insulin regulation. PHLPP2, on the other hand, controls the driver on Akt1, the path involved with cell surviv...

...ch are expressed in the same areas of the mammary gland at distinct developmental stages. While Akt1 protein increases during pregnancy and lactation, akt2 levels decline. Indeed, the researchers found that the mammary gland cells of Akt1-deficient mice failed to engage critical metabolic pathways d...
