.impactjournals.com/oncotarget4F translational initiation complex (eIF4F); by competing for the binding of eukaryotic initiation factor 4G (eIF4G) to eIF4E. 4E-BP1 phosphorylation by mTORC1 results in the release of the eIF4E, which then associates with eIF4G to stimulate translation initiation [1-3,135-138]. eIF4E is a key component for translation of 5′ capped mRNAs, that Chaetocin site include transcripts encoding proliferation and survival promoting proteins, such as c-Myc, cyclin D1, cyclin-dependent kinase-2 (CDK-2), signal activator and transducer of transcription-3 (STAT3), ornithine decarboxylase, survivin, B-cell lymphoma 2 (Bcl) -2, Bcl-xL, myeloid cell leukemia-1 (Mcl-1) and others [1-3,135-138]. The mechanisms which control mTORC2 activity have only begun to be revealed. mTORC2 activation requires PI3K, as inhibition of PI3K decreases mTORC2 activity [138]. mTORC2 phosphorylates Akt-1 on S473 that enhances subsequent Akt phosphorylation on T308 by PDK1. mTORC2 phosphorylates other members of the family of protein kinase A, G, and C (AGC) including as serum/glucocorticoid-regulated kinase (SGK1) [281]. mTORC2 has been shown to phosphorylate certain protein kinase C (PKC) family members [282]. mTORC2 has important roles in regulation of cell growth and it is a critical biological sensor [283]. For mTORC2 activity, it requires association with the ribosome and this may a critical sensor promoting growth when conditions are favorable but hindering growth when conditions are not favorable [284-287]. mTORC2 influences actin cytoskeletal organization [288]. Along these same lines, mTORC2 has been implicated in various aspects of tumor progression including motility, invasion and metastasis [289]. PI3K, Akt, and mTORC1/2 are linked to each other via Ensartinib web regulatory feedback loops, which restrain their simultaneous hyperactivation. Negative regulation of Akt activity by mTORC1 is dependent on p70S6K-mediated phosphorylation of IRS-1/2 adapter proteins, downstream of the IR and/or IGF-1R [290-292]. IRS-1 and IRS-2 are normally required to activate class IA PI3Ks after stimulation of IR and IGF-1R tyrosine kinase activity. When mTORC1 is active, p70S6K phosphorylates the IRS-1/2 proteins on serine residues, targeting them for proteasomal degradation [293,294]. Inhibition of mTORC1 signaling by rapamycin/ rapalogs removes the previously mentioned negative feedback loop and activates Akt through PI3K. Inhibiting mTORC1 with rapamycin will in some situations activate mTORC2. Recent findings have also highlighted the existence of a rapamycin-sensitive, mTORC1/p70S6Kmediated phosphorylation of Rictor on T1135. This phosphorylation event exerted a negative regulatory effect on the mTORC2-dependent phosphorylation of Akt in vivo [295]. Thus, both mTORC1 and mTORC2 could control Akt activation. PI3K/Akt/mTOR signaling is tightly controlled and negatively regulated by several lipid andOncotarget 2012; 3: 954-protein phosphatases. PTEN removes the 3′-phosphate from PIP3, thereby antagonizing network signalling [296,297]. Two other lipid phosphatases, SHIP-1 and -2, remove the 5-phosphate from PIP3 to yield PIP2 [298]. PP2A downregulates Akt activity directly, by dephosphorylating it at T308 and accumulating evidence indicates that PP2A acts as a tumor suppressor [299]. PP2A is an essential phosphatase critically involved in regulation of cell cycle progression [300] and DNA damage response [301] as well as p53 stability and other important biochemical events.
