Identification of Rictor as a Novel Substrate of Polo-like kinase 1.
West Lafayette, United States. In Cell Cycle, 25 Mar 2015
In particular, recent reports suggest the existence of a molecular and functional link between Plk1 and the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) pathway, which controls cell growth and proliferation via the raptor-mTOR (TORC1) and rictor-mTOR (TORC2) protein complexes.
Autophagy in DNA Damage Response.
Łódź, Poland. In Int J Mol Sci, Dec 2014
Autophagy can be activated in response to DNA-damaging agents, but the exact mechanism underlying this activation is not fully understood, although it is suggested that it involves the inhibition of mammalian target of rapamycin complex 1 (mTORC1).
Glutaminolysis activates Rag-mTORC1 signaling.
Basel, Switzerland. In Mol Cell, 2012
We demonstrate that glutamine in combination with leucine activates mammalian TORC1 (mTORC1) by enhancing glutaminolysis and alpha-ketoglutarate production.
