Breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related deaths in women worldwide. Its mortality rate is mainly driven by metastatic breast cancer, which is still generally incurable. AKT, also known as protein kinase B (PKB), belongs to the AGC family of protein kinases. It regulates tumor growth and various processes leading to breast cancer metastasis. Advances in knowledge about AKT signaling may potentially lead to future novel treatment options for patients with advanced or metastatic breast cancer.
