PDK1 Gene Editing    

PDK1 (3-phosphoinositide-dependent kinase 1) is a key member of the AGC protein kinase family and is capable of phosphorylating and activating at least 23 AGC kinases, including the AKT isoform (also known as PKB), p70 ribosomal S6 kinase ( S6K), serum and glucocorticoid-dependent kinase (SGK), P90 ribosomal S6 kinase (RSK), and atypical protein kinase (PKC). PDK1 is a key node in the PI3K pathway and contains 556 amino acids with a Pleckstrin homology (PH) domain and a catalytic domain characterized by a typical bilobal kinase fold in which the ATP cofactor is sandwiched between the amino terminal leaflet and the carboxy terminus larger leaves. PDK1 has five constantly phosphorylated Ser residues that are unaffected by the action of insulin. One of them, Ser241, is a prerequisite for PDK1 activity, and it appears that PDK1 is autophosphorylated on this residue. PDK1 is constitutively active, and phosphoinositide is responsible for converting its substrate into a form that is susceptible to phosphorylation by PDK1.

In many human tumor cells, PDK1 shows high levels of expression. Interestingly, an increase in the copy number of the PDK1 gene is often associated with other genetic mutations in the PI3K/AKT pathway (ERBB2 amplification, PTEN deletion or PIK3CA mutation) and poor patient prognosis. In addition, high PDK1 expression is related to advanced tumors (high lymph node metastasis or high histological grade) and short overall survival. Therefore, PDK1 expression can be used as a prognostic marker for this type of tumor. In hepatocellular carcinoma, the expression of PDK1 in cancer samples is higher than that in adjacent tissues. High PDK1 expression is associated with short postoperative overall survival and high recurrence rate (Figure 1).
