The proto-oncogene Pim1 belongs to a family of serine/threonine protein kinases that are highly conserved through evolution in multicellular organisms. Pim1 is involved in the control of cytokinemediated cell proliferation, differentiation and survival of lymphoid and myeloid cells as well as others. Expression of Pim1 can be stimulated by a variety of growth factors and is regulated at four different levels: transcriptional, post-transcriptional, translational and post-translational. Recently, Pim1 has been shown to enhance the activities of p100, c-Myb and Cdc 25a and in part this might explain reported effects of Pim1 on mitogenesis.
