Translocation of PDK1 to Plasma membrane (R-HSA-202164)

Species Homo sapiens


PI3K activation results in recruitment of the serine/threonine kinase PDK1, (3-phosphoinositide-dependent kinase 1) to the plasma membrane where PDK1 subsequently phosphorylates and activates AKT. PDK1 with its PH domain binds to either PIP3 or PIP2 and is translocated to the plasma membrane. PDK1 seems to exist in an active, phosphorylated configuration under basal conditions (Vanhaesebroeck & Alessi 2000).
