Gene: Akt2 (thymoma viral proto-oncogene 2) Mus musculus
Symbol: Akt2
Name: thymoma viral proto-oncogene 2
Description: Exhibits protein serine/threonine kinase activity. Involved in several processes, including activation of GTPase activity; cellular response to high light intensity; and positive regulation of transport. Localizes to cell cortex and ruffle membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including brown fat; central nervous system; genitourinary system; retina; and spleen. Used to study polycystic ovary syndrome and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in glucose metabolism disease (multiple); malignant glioma; and reproductive organ cancer (multiple). Orthologous to human AKT2 (AKT serine/threonine kinase 2); PARTICIPATES IN altered insulin responsive facilitative sugar transporter mediated glucose transport pathway; altered phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase-Akt signaling pathway; E-cadherin signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,2-dichloroethane; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
