SGK2 is a member of the serum- and glucocorticoid-induced kinases (SGK) which are serine-threonine kinases and belong to the "AGC" kinase subfamily, which includes protein kinases A, G, and C, and its catalytic domain is most similar to protein kinase B (PKB) (1). SGK2, like the other two isoforms SGK1 and SGK3, is stimulated by insulin and insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1), and has been shown to enhance Na(+)/K(+)-ATPase activity in a variety of cells (2).
