kinase) cascade by PRL-releasing peptide (PrRP) and insulin in GH3 rat pituitary tumor cells was investigated. PrRP and insulin rapidly and transiently stimulated the activation of Akt, and the PI3K inhibitor wortmannin blocked the PrRP- or insulin-induced activation of Akt. Both pertussis toxin (10 ng/ml), which inactivates Gi/Go proteins, and expression of a peptide derived from the carboxyl terminus of the �-adrenergic receptor kinase I, which specifically blocks signaling mediated by the � � subunits of G proteins, completely blocked the PrRP-induced Akt activation, suggesting that Gi/Go proteins are involved in PrRP-induced Akt activation, as they are in the activation of ERK by PrRP. Moreover, to determine whether a PI3K-Akt cascade regulates rat PRL (rPRL) promoter activity, we transfected the intact rPRL promoter ligated to the firefly luciferase reporter gene int
