Serum- and Glucocorticoid-Inducible Kinase 1 Confers Protection in Cell-Based and in In Vivo Neurotoxin Models via the c-Jun N-Terminal Kinase Signaling Pathway.
Jupiter, United States. In Mol Cell Biol, 01 Jul 2015
To investigate the effect of SGK1 overexpression in vivo, SGK1-expressing adenovirus was injected into the striatum of mice treated with 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine, and protection of dopaminergic neurons was quantitatively assessed by tyrosine hydroxylase immunohistochemistry. SGK1 overexpression was found to decrease reactive oxygen species generation, alleviate mitochondrial dysfunction, and rescue cell death in vitro and in vivo by inactivating mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase 4 (MKK4), JNK, and glycogen synthase kinase 3β (GSK3β) and thereby decreasing ER and oxidative stress.
Role of ion transport in control of apoptotic cell death.

Signaling involved in the modification of cell-volume regulatory ion transport during apoptosis include mitogen-activated kinases p38, JNK, ERK1/2, MEKK1, MKK4, the small G proteins Cdc42, and/or Rac and the transcription factor p53. Osmosensing involves integrin receptors, focal adhesion kinases, and tyrosine kinase receptors.
