... of TOR (target of rapamycin) 1 and TOR2 in T. brucei . In a more recent study, we described a novel TOR kinase, named TOR4, which regulates differentiation from the proliferative infective form to the quiescent form. In contrast with TOR1 loss-of-function, down-regulation of TOR4 triggers an irreversible...

...Rebecca Gilley; Kathryn Balmanno; Claire L. Cope; Simon J. Cook The mTOR [mammalian (or mechanistic) target of rapamycin] protein kinase co-ordinates catabolic and anabolic processes in response to growth factors and nutrients and is a validated anticancer drug target. Rapamycin and related...

...Michael N. Hall In the present article, I discuss recent developments in the naming of the TOR (target of rapamycin) protein. In particular, I address the issue of mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) versus the newer mechanistic target of rapamycin (MTOR). mTOR is the name given by the TOR...

... simultaneously with the glycolytic addiction of cancer cells. The PI3K (phosphoinositide 3-kinase)/mTOR [mammalian (or mechanistic) target of rapamycin] signalling pathway is a central signalling hub co-ordinating the growth in response to growth factor signalling and nutrient availability. Not surprisingly...

...Robbie Loewith The TOR (target of rapamycin) serine/threonine kinases are fascinating in that they influence many different aspects of eukaryote physiology including processes often dysregulated in disease. Beginning with the initial characterization of rapamycin as an antifungal agent, studies...

...Christopher G. Proud The TOR (target of rapamycin) proteins are found in all eukaryotes. TOR has a protein kinase domain, as well as other domains through which it interacts with partner proteins to form at least two types of multiprotein complex, TORC1 and TORC2 (TOR complexes 1 and 2). Rapamycin...

The ability of activated Akt to support nutrient transporter expression is an essential component of its prosurvival function. When the destruction of nutrient...
