Phosphorylation by PDK1
Species Homo sapiens
PDK1 activates ribosomal S6 kinase (RSK) by phosphorylating S221. The binding site for PDK1 on RSK is available after RSK phosphorylation by MAPK/ERK. PDK1 is present in the activated form at the plasma membrane where the phosphorylation occurs. The activation of RSK occurs in the cytoplasm, plasma membrane and in the nucleus where it finally activates CREB by phosphorylation.
