The two faces of Rsk2 in hyperplastic disease

Falconer, Jane and Buckley, CD (2015) The two faces of Rsk2 in hyperplastic disease. Nature Reviews Rheumatology. ISSN 1759-4804

Given the established role of 90 kDa ribosomal S6 kinases (Rsk) in oncogenesis, and the promise of new Rsk-blocking cancer treatments, it is perhaps surprising that Rsk2-mediated inhibition of hyperplasia has now been demonstrated to occur in the arthritic synovium. Does this functional duality make Rsk2 a risky target for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis?
