    mTORC1 is necessary but mTORC2 and GSK3β are inhibitory for AKT3-induced axon regeneration in the central nervous system

    Linqing Miao et al.
    The kinase AKT acts as a nodal point that coordinates both positive and negative cues to regulate the regeneration of central nervous system axons in adult mice.

    mTORC1 in AGRP neurons integrates exteroceptive and interoceptive food-related cues in the modulation of adaptive energy expenditure in mice

    Luke K Burke et al.
    AGRP neurons integrate environmental food-related cues with internal metabolic signals to modulate interscapular brown adipose tissue thermogenesis and energy expenditure, at least in part, via mTORC1 signalling.

    Tripartite suppression of fission yeast TORC1 signaling by the GATOR1-Sea3 complex, the TSC complex, and Gcn2 kinase

    Tomoyuki Fukuda et al.
    Sea3, a presumed subunit of the GATOR2 complex in fission yeast, is required for the GATOR1 function that attenuates TORC1 in parallel with the TSC complex and Gcn2 kinase.

    Inhibition of mTORC1 by ER stress impairs neonatal β-cell expansion and predisposes to diabetes in the Akita mouse

    Yael Riahi et al.
    mTORC1 inhibition by perinatal ER stress induces beta-cell growth arrest with subsequent development of diabetes.

    A critical role for mTORC1 in erythropoiesis and anemia

    Zachary A Knight et al.
    Transcription profiling of activated cells using Phospho-Trap, a new method for identifying activated cells, reveals a critical role for mTOR signaling in red blood cell development and the pathogenesis of anemia

    The E3 ubiquitin ligase ZNRF2 is a substrate of mTORC1 and regulates its activation by amino acids

    Gerta Hoxhaj et al.
    The ZNRF2 enzyme helps the mTOR protein complex to sense amino acid levels and regulate mammalian cell growth.

    mTORC1 in the orbitofrontal cortex promotes habitual alcohol seeking

    Nadege Morisot et al.
    In the orbitofrontal cortex, mTORC1, a multiprotein complex centered around the kinase mTOR, contributes to the development and/or maintenance of habitual alcohol seeking.

    TORC2-dependent protein kinase Ypk1 phosphorylates ceramide synthase to stimulate synthesis of complex sphingolipids

    Alexander Muir et al.
    TORC2-Ypk1 signaling upregulates flux through the sphingolipid pathway not only by increasing the supply of long-chain base precursors, but also by increasing their use in synthesizing complex sphingolipids.

    GPCR signaling inhibits mTORC1 via PKA phosphorylation of Raptor

    Jenna L Jewell et al.
    Protein kinase A (PKA) phosphorylates Raptor and inhibits mammalian target of rapamycin complex 1 (mTORC1) activity.

    Dynamics of mTORC1 activation in response to amino acids

    Maria Manifava et al.
    Activation by amino acids causes mTORC1 to translocate transiently to the lysosomal surface.
