We investigated epidermal growth factor (EGF)-induced activation of 85-kDa/110-kDa phosphatidylinositol (PI)-3-kinase and 70-kDa S6 kinase in Chinese hamster ovary cells expressing the human EGF receptor. EGF-induced activation of p70 S6 kinase was comparable to that induced by insulin, whereas that of PI-3-kinase in anti-phosphotyrosine immunoprecipitates was very small compared with insulin. Wortmannin, a p85/p110 PI-3-kinase inhibitor, inhibited EGF-induced activation of p70 S6 kinase in a dose-dependent manner. Given that several proteins homologous to catalytic subunit of p85/p110 PI-3-kinase have been identified and that wortmannin inhibits distinct form of PI-3-kinase, the present results suggest that wortmannin-sensitive kinases that resemble catalytic subunit of p85/p110 PI-3-kinase may participate in the signaling pathway from EGF receptors to p70 S6 kinase.
