InnateDB Annotation
MTOR is the signalling molecule involved in TLR-mediated IFN-alpha production by plasmacytoid dendritic cells (pDCs).
MTOR is an indispensable component of pathogen recognition receptor (PRR) signal pathways that orchestrates the defence program of innate immune cells.
MTOR plays a central role in cell growth and cellular responses to metabolic stress and its activation is essential in TLR2- and TLR4-induced neutrophil activation, as well as in the development and severity of acute lung injury.
MTOR signalling is one major mechanism in a tightly regulated network of intracellular signal pathways including the JAK/STAT system to regulate invasion in human trophoblast cells by secretion of enzymes that remodel the extra-cellular matrix (ECM) such as MMP2, MMP9, PLAU and SERPINE1.
Inhibition of mTOR blocks the anti-inflammatory potency of glucocorticoids both in human monocytes and myeloid dendritic cells.
InnateDB Annotation from Orthologs
[Mus musculus] Inhibition of mTOR blocks the anti-inflammatory potency of glucocorticoids both in human monocytes and myeloid dendritic cells. (Demonstrated in human)
[Mus musculus] The interplay between Tsc1-Rheb-mTOR complex 1 signalling and Myc-dependent metabolism are dynamically regulated during dentritic cell (DC) development, whereas uncontrolled mTORC1 activation impairs DC development.
Entrez Gene
Summary The protein encoded by this gene belongs to a family of phosphatidylinositol kinase-related kinases. These kinases mediate cellular responses to stresses such as DNA damage and nutrient deprivation. This protein acts as the target for the cell-cycle arrest and immunosuppressive effects of the FKBP12-rapamycin complex. The ANGPTL7 gene is located in an intron of this gene.
