GATSL3 [ENSP00000384183]

Cytosolic arginine sensor for mTORC1 subunit 1; Functions as an intracellular arginine sensor within the amino acid-sensing branch of the TORC1 signaling pathway. As a homodimer or a heterodimer with CASTOR2, binds and inhibits the GATOR subcomplex GATOR2 and thereby mTORC1. Binding of arginine to CASTOR1 allosterically disrupts the interaction of CASTOR1- containing dimers with GATOR2 which can in turn activate mTORC1 and the TORC1 signaling pathway; Belongs to the GATS family.
