Another life problem solved! Haha thanks!

Lkb1 is involved in PJS. How?

Peutz Jegher's Syndrome mnemonic:
Remember the initial letters of the disease - PJS.
P: Pigmented oral mucosa
J: Jejunal polyps
S: STK 11 defect
Thank you  IkaN!

Oh nice. LKB1 kinase activity is lost due to somatic mutations. In Peutz Jegher's Syndrome, that is.
