serum and glucocorticoid-inducible kinase is an AGC protein kinase of the SGK family. Rapidly induced in response to a variety of stimuli including serum, glucocorticoids, follicle stimulating hormone, osmotic shock and mineralocorticoids. Can be activated via PI3K-dependent and -independent pathways. Plays a role in activating certain potassium, sodium and chloride channels, suggesting an involvement in the regulation of processes such as cell survival, neuronal excitability and renal sodium excretion. SGK is negatively regulated by ubiquitin modification and proteasome degradation. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
