Target of rapamycin complex 1 (TORC1) has a key role in cellular regulations in response to environmental conditions. In yeast, Tip41 downregulates TORC1 signaling via activation of PP2A phosphatase. We show here that overexpression of TIPRL, a mammalian Tip41, suppressed dephosphorylation of mechanistic TORC1 (mTORC1) substrates under amino acid withdrawal, and knockdown of TIPRL conversely attenuated phosphorylation of those substrates after amino acid refeeding. TIPRL associated with the catalytic subunit of PP2A (PP2Ac), which was required for the TIPRL action on mTORC1 signaling. Collectively, unlike yeast TIP41, TIPRL has a positive effect on mTORC1 signaling through the association with PP2Ac.
