Ribosomal protein S6 (RPS6) belongs to the S6E family of ribosomal proteins and it is involved in the control of cell growth and proliferation via selective translation (1). It is a major substrate of Ribosomal Protein S6 Kinase (RSK) in eukaryote ribosomes. During translation, it regulates the translation of any RNA that contains 5' terminal oligopyrimidine sequence (5'TOP) (2). 5'TOP encodes proteins for cell cycle progression, ribosomal proteins, and elongation factors. The phosphorylation of RPS6 has been linked to an increase in selective 5'TOP translation. The major phosphorylation sites of RPS6 include Ser235, 236, 240, and 244 (2). Phosphorylation on RPS6 is stimulated by growth factors, tumor promoting agents, and mitogens. During growth arrest, RPS6 is dephosphorylated (3).
