Protein names


Protein function

Subunit of both mTORC1 and mTORC2, which regulates cell growth and survival in response to nutrient and hormonal signals. mTORC1 is activated in response to growth factors or amino acids. Growth factor-stimulated mTORC1 activation involves a AKT1-mediated phosphorylation of TSC1-TSC2, which leads to the activation of the RHEB GTPase that potently activates the protein kinase activity of mTORC1. Amino acid-signaling to mTORC1 requires its relocalization to the lysosomes mediated by the Ragulator complex and the Rag GTPases. Activated mTORC1 up-regulates protein synthesis by phosphorylating key regulators of mRNA translation and ribosome synthesis. mTORC1 phosphorylates EIF4EBP1 and releases it from inhibiting the elongation initiation factor 4E (eiF4E). mTORC1 phosphorylates and activates S6K1 at ‘Thr-389’, which then promotes protein synthesis by phosphorylating PDCD4 and targeting it for degradation. Within mTORC1, LST8 interacts directly with MTOR and enhances its kinase activity. In nutrient-poor conditions, stabilizes the MTOR-RPTOR interaction and favors RPTOR-mediated inhibition of MTOR activity. mTORC2 is also activated by growth factors, but seems to be nutrient-insensitive. mTORC2 seems to function upstream of Rho GTPases to regulate the actin cytoskeleton, probably by activating one or more Rho-type guanine nucleotide exchange factors. mTORC2 promotes the serum-induced formation of stress-fibers or F-actin. mTORC2 plays a critical role in AKT1 ‘Ser-473’ phosphorylation, which may facilitate the phosphorylation of the activation loop of AKT1 on ‘Thr-308’ by PDK1 which is a prerequisite for full activation. mTORC2 regulates the phosphorylation of SGK1 at ‘Ser-422’. mTORC2 also modulates the phosphorylation of PRKCA on ‘Ser-657’.

Protein tissue specificity

Broadly expressed, with highest levels in skeletal muscle, heart and kidney.

Protein sequence and domain

Belongs to the WD repeat LST8 family.; Contains 7 WD repeats.

Protein cellular localization

Cytoplasm .


Cell growth is a fundamental biological process whereby cells accumulate mass and increase in size. The mammalian Target of Rapamycin (mTOR) pathway regulates growth by coordinating energy and nutrient signals with growth factor-derived signals (1). mTOR is a large protein kinase with two different complexes. One complex contains mTOR, GbetaL, and raptor, which is a target of rapamycin. The other complex, insensitive to rapamycin, includes mTOR, GbetaL, and rictor (1). GbetaL associates with the kinase domain of mTOR and stimulates mTOR kinase activity (2). A reduction in GbetaL expression has been shown to decrease in vivo phosphorylation of S6K1 (2).
