Target of Rapamycin (TOR) in Nutrient Signaling and Growth Control

  title={Target of Rapamycin (TOR) in Nutrient Signaling and Growth Control},
  author={Robbie Loewith and Michael N. Hall},
TOR (Target Of Rapamycin) is a highly conserved protein kinase that is important in both fundamental and clinical biology. In fundamental biology, TOR is a nutrient-sensitive, central controller of cell growth and aging. In clinical biology, TOR is implicated in many diseases and is the target of the drug rapamycin used in three different therapeutic areas. The yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae has played a prominent role in both the discovery of TOR and the elucidation of its function. Here we… CONTINUE READING
