AKT phosphorylation of the pro-apoptotic Forkhead transcription factor FOXO3 and other Foxo family members occurs downstream of FLT3 and FLT3-ITD-mediated signaling (Scheijen et al, 2004; Brandts et al 2005; reviewed in Kazi and Roonstrand, 2019). AKT-mediated phosphorylation promotes nuclear export, resulting in a decrease in expression of apoptosis-promoting FOXO3-target genes (Brunet et al, 1999; reviewed in Burgering, 2008; Yadav et al, 2018).
