Experimental data and computer simulations demonstrate that cross-talk is context-dependent and that both pathways can activate or inhibit each other. Positive influence of the PI3K pathway on the MAPK pathway is most effective at sufficiently low doses of growth factors, whereas negative influence of the MAPK pathway on the PI3K pathway is mostly pronounced at high doses of growth factors. Pathway cross-talk endows a cell with emerging capabilities for processing and decoding signals from multiple receptors activated by different combinations of extracellular cues.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Portland Press||Copyright (published version):||2012 Portland Press||Keywords:||Akt;cross-talk;mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK);phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K);Ras||DOI:||10.1042/BST20110609||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
