A tubular structure to stop cell growth

TORC1 is an enzyme complex that controls the normal growth of our cells; but, when too active, it can promote diseases such as cancer. A new study describes how sugar regulates the activity of TORC1, through a surprising mechanism. In the absence of sugar, TORC1s assemble into a tubular structure, rendering them inactive and thus cell growth stops. (Mehr in: Cancer News — ScienceDaily)
