Gene: AKT2 (AKT serine/threonine kinase 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: AKT2
Name: AKT serine/threonine kinase 2
CRRD ID: 732407
Description: Exhibits ATP binding activity and protein serine/threonine kinase activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of mitochondrial membrane potential; positive regulation of small molecule metabolic process; and regulation of transmembrane transport. Localizes to cytosol; nucleoplasm; and protein-containing complex. Implicated in glucose metabolism disease (multiple) and reproductive organ cancer (multiple). Biomarker of astrocytoma; colorectal cancer; malignant glioma; obesity; and type 2 diabetes mellitus.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
