V-akt murine thymoma viral oncogene homolog 2

Akt2, Akt3, PKBbeta
This gene is a putative oncogene encoding a protein belonging to a subfamily of serine/threonine kinases containing SH2-like (Src homology 2-like) domains. The gene was shown to be amplified and overexpressed in 2 of 8 ovarian carcinoma cell lines and 2 of 15 primary ovarian tumors. Overexpression contributes to the malignant phenotype of a subset of human ductal pancreatic cancers. The encoded protein is a general protein kinase capable of phophorylating several known proteins.

In a recent study in Nature Communications, (1) Lim et al identify Tropomodulin3 (Tmod3) as a downstream target of the Akt2 kinase and describe the role of this pointed-end actin-capping protein in regulating insulin-dependent exocytosis of GSVs in adipocytes through the remodeling of the cortical actin network.

Infantile tauopathies: Hemimegalencephaly; tuberous sclerosis complex; focal cortical dysplasia 2; ganglioglioma.
Review
New
Flores-Sarnat et al., Calgary, Canada. In Brain Dev, Jun 2015
The prototype infantile tauopathy is (1) hemimegalencephaly (HME); normal tau is degraded by a mutant AKT3 or AKT1 gene as the aetiology of focal somatic mosaicism in the periventricular neuroepithelium.
