Interaction Information:

Comment Cellular stresses inhibit TORC1 through a variety of mechanisms, which also converge on the TSC complex; thus energy depletion or hypoxia, for example, activate the AMPK, which (in collaboration with GSK3) phosphorylates TSC2 and activates the TSC GAP function. Glucocorticoids, hypoxia, and other stresses induce expression of the REDD1 polypeptide, which binds 14-3-3 and thereby relieves 14-3-3 inhibition of the TSC GAP function. Thus, these negative regulatory inputs to TORC1 appear to operate largely through upregulation of the GTPase-activating function of the TSC complex.
