Serum and glucocorticoid-regulated protein kinase 1 (SGK1) is a member of the AGC family of serine/threonine kinases that plays an important role in cellular stress response and cell survival. SGK1 is transcriptionally activated by numerous stimuli, including serum, glucocorticoids, osmotic stress, and hormones. SGK1 functions as a regulator of cell survival and ion channels and transporters such as ENaC or KCNA3/Kv1. 3. It phosphorylates and negatively regulates pro-apoptotic FOXO3A. SGK1 is thought to play an essential function in nephropathy and cardiovascular development.
