Abstract

Protein kinase B (PKB) has emerged as the focal point for many signal transduction pathways, regulating multiple cellular processes such as glucose metabolism, transcription, apoptosis, cell proliferation, angiogenesis, and cell motility. In addition to acting as a kinase toward many substrates involved in these processes, PKB forms complexes with other proteins that are not substrates, but rather act as modulators of PKB activity and function. In this review, we discuss the implications of these data in understanding the multitude of functions predicted for PKB in cells.
