dTOR, mTOR, TORC1, FRAP/TOR, l(2)k17004
Low-frequency RNA-Seq exon junction(s) not annotated.
Gene model reviewed during 5.48
None of the polypeptides share 100% sequence identity.
May be part of a minimal complex, TORC1, consisting of tor, raptor and lst8. May be part of a minimal complex, TORC2, consisting of tor, rictor and lst8 (By similarity). Self-associates; assembles into homomultimeric complexes. Component of a multiprotein complex.

Please Note This section lists cDNAs and ESTs that fall within the genomic extent of the gene model, which may include cDNAs and ESTs of genes within introns, or of overlapping genes. Please see GBrowse for alignment of the cDNAs and ESTs to the gene model.
For each fully sequenced cDNA the DGRC maintains various forms of the cDNA (e.g tagged or untagged) in several different host vectors for subsequent cloning and expression in Drosophila and Drosophila cell lines.
Tor is specifically required for developmental axon regrowth but not initial axon outgrowth.
dsRNA made from templates generated with primers directed against this gene results in a reduced mean cell diameter and a corresponding decrease in S6k phosphorylation. Silencing Tor generates a cell-expression profile similar to that of rapamycin-treated cells.
dsRNA made from templates generated with primers directed against this gene used to treat S2 cells.
Identified in an RNAi screen for host factors that alter infection of SL2 cells by L.monocytogenes.
When dsRNA constructs are made and transiently transfected into S2 cells in RNAi experiments, an increase in the proportion of G1 phase cells, a decrease in cell size and a decrease in cytokinetic index is seen.
Signaling through Tor and its upstream regulators Pi3K92E/Pi3K21B and Rheb is necessary and sufficient to suppress starvation-induced autophagy in the fat body. Tor suppresses autophagy independently of S6k.
dsRNA made from templates generated with primers directed against this gene tested in RNAi screen for effects on Kc167 and S2R+ cell morphology.
