      Background InformationAS160 (Akt Substrate of 160 kDa, Akt1S1), Rab GAP (GTPase activating protein), is phosphorylated on multiple sites by Akt in response to insulin in adipocytes and contraction in muscles. AS160 is the long sought after link between the upstream insulin signaling through insulin/PI3K/Akt and GLUT4 vessicle translocation to the cell membrane. It has 6 Akt phosphorylation consensus sequences that are believed to become phosphorylated upon insulin stimulation. This phosphorylation is required for translocation of GLUT4-containing vesicles to the cell membrane1. A mutation of two or more of these phosphorylation sites results in a dramatic decrease in AS160 activity and insulin-stimulated GLUT4 redistribution at the cell membrane2. AS160 has also shown to be important for GLUT4 expcytosis2.

      UniProt SummaryFUNCTION: May act as a GTPase-activating protein for RAB2A, RAB8A, RAB10 and RAB14. Promotes insulin-induced glucose transporter SLC2A4/GLUT4 translocation at the plasma membrane, thus increasing glucose uptake (By similarity).

      SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Cytoplasm. Note: Cytoplasmic perinuclear (by similarity).

      TISSUE SPECIFICTY: Widely expressed, including in pancreatic beta cells.

      PTM: Phosphorylated by AKT1; insulin-induced.

      Insulin-stimulated phosphorylation is required for GLUT4 translocation. Has no effect on GLUT4 internalization.

      SEQUENCE SIMILARITIES: Contains 2 PID domains.

      Contains 1 Rab-GAP TBC domain.
      Molecular Weight~ 160 kDa
