Summaries for RPS6KB2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for RPS6KB2 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the RSK (ribosomal S6 kinase) family of serine/threonine kinases. This kinase contains a kinase catalytic domain and phosphorylates the S6 ribosomal protein and eukaryotic translation initiation factor 4B (eIF4B). Phosphorylation of S6 leads to an increase in protein synthesis and cell proliferation. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2015]

GeneCards Summary for RPS6KB2 Gene

RPS6KB2 (Ribosomal Protein S6 Kinase, 70kDa, Polypeptide 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with RPS6KB2 include kleine-levin syndrome and landau-kleffner syndrome. Among its related pathways are PI3K-Akt signaling pathway and PI-3K cascade. GO annotations related to this gene include protein serine/threonine kinase activity and peptide binding. An important paralog of this gene is AKT1.
