Abstract

The mechanistic target of rapamycin complex 1 (mTORC1) coordinates nutrient availability with cell growth. Recent reports by Sabatini and coworkers (Saxton et al., 2016; Wolfson et al., 2016) characterize a cytoplasmic amino acid receptor that couples the binding of leucine to the activation of mTORC1.
