Real-time imaging uncovers mTORC1 dynamics

(Babraham Institute) For the first time, researchers at the Babraham Institute have been able to successfully tag a protein in the mTORC1 complex to observe its intracellular movement in real time. The discovery of how the complex behaves modifies current thinking about mTORC1 activation and signalling and provides new tools to dissect the role of mTORC1 in governing cell growth.
