Cancer development and progression involve a complex network of pathways among which certain pathways play a pivotal role in promoting tumor growth and survival. An important pathway in this context is the PI3K/AKT pathway, which regulates crucial cellular processes including proliferation, viability, and metabolic regulation. Dysregulation of this pathway has been strongly linked to the development of various types of cancers. Consequently, it is imperative to identify the key proteins within this pathway as potential targets for impeding cancer cell proliferation and survival.


One of the key findings of this study was the identification of signaling proteins that dominate various forms of PI3K/Akt pathway. Furthermore, proteins play critical roles in cancer networks, acting as oncogenes that promote cancer development or as tumor suppressor genes that inhibit tumor growth. This study identified several genes, including KIT, ERBB2, PDGFRA, MET, FGFR2, and FGFR3, which are involved in various types of the PI3K/Akt pathways. Additionally, this study identified 55 proteins that are commonly found in various forms of PI3K/Akt, and these proteins play crucial roles in regulating various biological functions.


This study highlights the importance of identifying key proteins involved in the PI3K/AKT pathway. In this study, we identified several genes involved in different pathways that play essential roles in the activation, signaling, and regulation of the pathway. Understanding the proteins participating in the PI3K/AKT pathway is vital for the development of targeted therapies, not only for cancer but also for other related diseases. By elucidating their roles and functions, this study contributes to the advancement of knowledge in the field and paves the way for the development of effective treatments targeting this pathway.
