Interaction Information:

Comment As regards the biochemical mechanism by which Rheb activates mTORC1, Rheb does not achieve this effect through modulating amino acid uptake, as overexpressing Rheb (or TSC1/2) has no effect on the steady-state concentration of individual amino acids within the cells, including the concentrations of branched-chain amino acids and arginine.
