Interaction Information:

Comment Growth factors regulate TORC1 activity via either the PI3K/Akt pathway or the Ras/MAPK pathway, which converge on the tuberous sclerosis heterodimeric complex (TSC1-TSC2) to inhibit, by phosphorylation of TSC2, the GTPase-activating function (GAP activity) toward the small GTPase Rheb (Ras homolog enriched in brain).
