The 70 kDa S6 kinase: regulation of a kinase with multiple roles in mitogenic signalling.

Author information

Harvard Medical School, Department of Cell Biology, Boston, MA 02115, USA.


The activation of the 70kDa S6 kinase, pp70S6k, is a well documented mitogenic response, yet until recently little was known of how pp70S6k is activated, or of the identities of its crucial targets. The past year has revealed the complexity of pp70S6k regulation, with the overriding theme being that enzymes which have proven or putative roles in phospholipid metabolism mediate its activation. Studies also indicate that pp70S6k may regulate many more pathways than previously recognized.
