|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. Adapter protein that enhances the efficiency of the MAP kinase cascade facilitating the activation of MAPK2.|
|Cellular Location||Late endosome membrane; Peripheral membrane protein; Cytoplasmic side. Lysosome membrane; Peripheral membrane protein; Cytoplasmic side|

The late endosomal/lysosomal adaptor MAPK and MTOR activator 2 (LAMTOR2) protein belongs to the LAMTOR family of proteins, and together with LAMTOR3 and the MAPK1 and ERK kinase 1 (MEK1) localizes to late endosomes where it is required for the efficient activation of ERK signaling (1,2). This complex is involved in the regulation of late endosomal traffic and cellular proliferation (3) and plays a role in cellular host defense against Salmonella infection (4).
