p70S6K (human)

p70S6K an AGC kinase of the RSK family that is required for cell growth and G1 cell cycle progression. Is phosphorylated and activated by mTOR in mitogenic pathways downstream of phosphoinositide 3 kinase (PI3K). Phosphorylates the S6 protein of the 40S ribosomal subunit and is involved in translational control of 5' oligopyrimidine tract mRNAs. Activity is controlled by multiple phosphorylation events located within the catalytic, linker and pseudosubstrate domains. Mouse knockout shows symptoms of insulin resistance, and increased insulin senstivity, resulting in protection against diet-induced obesity. Protein expression and activation upregulated in colon adenocarcinoma cell lines. Increased expression in breast cancer correlated with poor survival. Selectively amplified and overexpressed within the 17q23 breast cancer amplicon. Two isoforms produced by alternative initiation have been reported.
