Abstract

In this issue of Molecular Cell, Jia et al. (2018) identify a lysosomal damage-response pathway centered on galectin 8 and 9 that feeds back on mTORC1 signaling. In response to lysosome-damaging agents, galectins inhibits mTORC1, triggering a stress response that may help restore cellular homeostasis.
