Previous GeneCards Identifiers for SGK2 Gene
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 signals that activate phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase, which is also true for SGK. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.

GeneCards Summary for SGK2 Gene
SGK2 (SGK2, Serine/Threonine Kinase 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are FoxO signaling pathway and Transport of glucose and other sugars, bile salts and organic acids, metal ions and amine compounds. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include transferase activity, transferring phosphorus-containing groups and protein tyrosine kinase activity. An important paralog of this gene is SGK1.
