    Sumitani S, Goya K, Testa J, Kouhara H, Kasayama S. Akt1 and Akt2 differently regulate muscle creatine kinase and myogenin gene transcription in insulin-induced differentiation of C2C12 myoblasts. Endocrinology. 2002;143:820-8 pubmed
    ..PI3K activity, but not mTOR, may regulate transcriptional activity of myogenin. Our data also suggest that Akt1 and Akt2 play distinct roles in myogenic differentiation. ..
