Polyclonal Rabbit Affinity Purified B IP FC
Tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) is an autosomal dominant disorder that causes symptoms
including hamartomas in brain, kidney, heart, lung and skin (1). The tumor suppressor genes TSC1 and TSC2 encode hamartin and tuberin, respectively (2, 3). Hamartin and tuberin form a functional complex and are involved in numerous cellular activities such as vesicular trafficking, regulation of the G1 phase of the cell cycle, steroid hormone regulation, Rho activation and
anchoring neuronal intermediate filaments to the actin cytoskeleton (49). Cells lacking hamartin or tuberin display phosphorylation of S6 kinase and S6 resulting
in negative regulation of S6 kinase. Furthermore, the combination of genetic, biochemical and cell-biological studies demonstrate that the tuberin:hamartin complex functions as a GTPase-activating protein for the Rasrelated G protein Rheb, and thus inhibits targets of rapamycin including mTOR (10). Hamartin is phosphorylated by CDK1 (cdc2) at Thr417, Ser584 and Thr1047 in cells in G2/M phase of the cell cycle (11).
