|Function||As part of the Ragulator complex it is involved in amino acid sensing and activation of mTORC1, a signaling complex promoting cell growth in response to growth factors, energy levels, and amino acids. Activated by amino acids through a mechanism involving the lysosomal V-ATPase, the Ragulator functions as a guanine nucleotide exchange factor activating the small GTPases Rag. Activated Ragulator and Rag GTPases function as a scaffold recruiting mTORC1 to lysosomes where it is in turn activated. LAMTOR1 is directly responsible for anchoring the Ragulator complex to membranes. Also required for late endosomes/lysosomes biogenesis it may regulate both the recycling of receptors through endosomes and the MAPK signaling pathway through recruitment of some of its components to late endosomes. May be involved in cholesterol homeostasis regulating LDL uptake and cholesterol release from late endosomes/lysosomes. May also play a role in RHOA activation.|

LAMTOR1 is a 161 amino acid membrane protein belonging to the LAMTOR family. It has been identified to interact with and recruit the four Rag GTPases (Rag A-D) to the surface of lysosomes (1). The mTORC1 kinase complex is a critical component in the regulation of cell growth (2). As part of the ragulator complex, LAMTOR1 recruits the Rag GTPases and the mTORC1 complex to lysosomes, a key step in activation of the TOR signaling cascade by amino acids (3). LAMTOR1 may be involved in cholesterol homeostasis regulating LDL uptake and cholesterol release from late endosomes / lysosomes (4).
