Abstract

TOR was discovered and christened 10 years ago. On the occasion of this anniversary, we revisit the discovery of TOR and chronicle subsequent breakthroughs in S. cerevisiae that contributed to an understanding of TOR function in yeast and higher eukaryotes. In particular, we discuss findings that led to the realization that the function of TOR is to control cell growth in response to nutrients.
