mTOR Signaling in Epilepsy: Insights from Malformations of Cortical Development.
Philadelphia, United States. In Cold Spring Harb Perspect Med, Dec 2014
Mutations in mTOR regulatory genes (e.g., TSC1, TSC2, AKT3, DEPDC5) have been associated with several focal MCD highly associated with epilepsy such as tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC), hemimegalencephaly (HME; brain malformation associated with dramatic enlargement of one brain hemisphere), and cortical dysplasia.
Coordinated regulation of protein synthesis and degradation by mTORC1.
Boston, United States. In Nature, Oct 2014
Genetic activation of mTORC1 through loss of the tuberous sclerosis complex tumour suppressors, TSC1 or TSC2, or physiological activation of mTORC1 in response to growth factors or feeding resulted in increased NRF1 expression in cells and tissues.
Molecular genetics of clear-cell renal cell carcinoma.
Dallas, United States. In J Clin Oncol, Jul 2014
Several additional tumor suppressor genes have been identified near the VHL gene, within a region that is frequently deleted in ccRCC on chromosome 3p: SETD2, BAP1, and PBRM1.
