Akt, protein kinase B (PKB), is a serine/threonine kinase which is involved in many cellular signaling pathways and acts as a transducer of many functions initiated by growth factor receptors that activat phosphtidylinositol 3-kinase (PI 3-kinase). The major activity of Akt/PKB is to mediate cell survival. Akt/PKB is also believed to be a critical factor in the genesis of cancer as the tumor suppressor PTEN was found to antagonise PI-3 kinase and Akt/PKB kinase activity. Akt/PKB phosphorylation is critical for it activity. The major phosphorylation sites required for Akt activation has been identified as threoinine 308 and serine 473. Serine 473 is phosphorylated by MAPKAP kinase 2.

AKT1, Scene 1: The Cell Must Go On Akt1 is a serine/threonine-specific protein kinase involved in many cellular signaling pathways. The major function of this kinase is to mediate cell survival, but it also plays key roles in various other cellular functions such as glycogen synthesis... Read full blog post.
EZH2: Epigenetic Regulation Made Easy! Enhancer of Zeste homolog 2 (EZH2) is the methyltransferase enzyme responsible for trimethylating lysine 27 on histone H3 to produce H3K27Me3.
