Gene: Akt2 (AKT serine/threonine kinase 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Akt2
Name: AKT serine/threonine kinase 2
RGD ID: 2082
Description: Exhibits ATP binding activity; protein kinase C binding activity; and protein serine/threonine kinase activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of nitrogen compound metabolic process; positive regulation of nitrogen compound metabolic process; and positive regulation of transport. Localizes to several cellular components, including insulin-responsive compartment; mitochondrion; and sarcoplasmic reticulum. Used to study ischemia and malignant glioma. Biomarker of colorectal cancer; hepatocellular carcinoma; hypertension; and obesity. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in glucose metabolism disease (multiple) and reproductive organ cancer (multiple). Orthologous to human AKT2 (AKT serine/threonine kinase 2); PARTICIPATES IN insulin responsive facilitative sugar transporter mediated glucose transport pathway; phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase-Akt signaling pathway; altered insulin responsive facilitative sugar transporter mediated glucose transport pathway; INTERACTS WITH (S)-nicotine; 1,2-dimethylhydrazine; 2,2',5,5'-tetrachlorobiphenyl.
Type: protein-coding
