Gene Symbol AKT1
Synonyms AKT | CWS6 | PKB | PKB-ALPHA | PRKBA | RAC | RAC-ALPHA
Gene Description AKT1, RAC-alpha serine/threonine-protein kinase, is a ubquitously expressed serine-threonine protein kinase, which regulates a variety of cell functions including, metabolism, growth, angiogenesis, cell proliferation and survival through PI3K signaling in response to extracellular signals (PMID: 23297823, PMID: 26698230). Akt1 mutations are observed in a variety of tumor types (PMID: 23134728), including breast cancer (PMID: 30212483), gastric cancer (PMID: 29714127), salivary carcinoma (PMID: 29682203), and overexpression has been observed in osteosarcoma (PMID: 29762834) and gastric cancer (PMID: 29278885).

Filtering

  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows where any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a spaces, order doesn't matter (a b c and c b a are equivalent )
  • Filtering will only apply to rows that are already loaded on the page, filtering has no impact on query parameters
  • Use quotes to match a longer phrase which contains spaces "mtor c1483f"

Sorting

  • Generally, the default sort order for tables is set to be first column ascending, however, specific tables may set a different default sort order.
  • Click on any column header arrows to sort by that column
  • Hold down the Shift key and click multiple columns to sort by more than one column, be sure to set ascending or descending order for a given column, before moving on to the next column.
