Role of N-end rule ubiquitin ligases UBR1 and UBR2 in regulating the leucine-mTOR signaling pathway.


Of 20 natural amino acids, leucine is particularly important for promoting cellular protein synthesis. The effect of leucine involves mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR), a key protein kinase controlling cell growth. Leucine enhances mTOR-mediated phosphorylation of S6K1 and 4E-BP, thereby promoting protein synthesis. However, how the presence of leucine… (More)
