This schematic shows how amino acid inputs arising from multiple sensors in distinct cellular compartments impinge on the Rag GTPases to control the activity of the growth-regulating mTORC1 pathway. The protein Sestrin2 (and likely Sestrin1) binds leucine, disrupting an interaction between Sestrin2 and GATOR2, which in turn activates mTORC1.
