Rapamycin-insensitive companion of mTOR, N-terminal domain (IPR028267)

Short name: Pianissimo_N

Domain relationships



The mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) is a conserved Ser/Thr kinase that forms two functionally distinct complexes, mTROC1 and mTORC2, important for nutrient and growth-factor signalling. Rictor (rapamycin-insensitive companion of mTOR) is a component of mTORC2 [PMID: 15268862]. There is a regulatory link between the two mTOR complexes, whereby Rictor phosphorylation by mTORC1 regulates mTORC2 signalling [PMID: 19995915]. Over-expression of Rictor increases mTORC2 activity and promotes cell growth and motility [PMID: 18089801].

This domain is the N-terminal conserved section that may include several individual domains.
