GENE SUMMARY
This gene encodes a serine/threonine protein kinase. Although this gene product is similar to serum- and glucocorticoid-induced protein kinase (SGK), this gene is not induced by serum or glucocorticoids. This gene is induced in response to sigls that activate phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase, which is also true for SGK. Altertive splicing results in multiple transcript variants.
