Rabbit anti Human mTOR antibody
recognizes mammalian/mechanistic target of rapamycin (mTOR), also known as FRAP, RAFT1. mTOR is a serine/threonine protein kinase belonging to the PI3K-related kinse (PIKK) family. mTOR forms two distinct multiprotein complexes named mTORC1 and mTORC2, which play key roles in regulatory processes of cells (Xie et al. 2016
). mTOR regulates cell growth and metabolism in response to environmental cues and cell stress, including nutrient starvation, growth factor deprivation and hypoxia (Lamm et al. 2019
). The mTOR signaling pathway plays a role in cancer cell proliferation, cell cycle and apoptosis. mTOR dysregulation is linked to tumorigenesis, and is associated with a poor prognosis (Wang et al. 2018
). mTORC1 hyperactivation is estimated to occur in up to 70% of human tumors, and mTOR has been suggested as a potential target for anti-cancer therapy.
