08/07/2017 Human name has changed for Entrez Gene: 2475. From mechanistic target of rapamycin to mechanistic target of rapamycin kinase.
summary from NCBI
The protein encoded by this gene belongs to a family of phosphatidylinositol kinase-related kinases. These kinases mediate cellular responses to stresses such as DNA damage and nutrient deprivation. This protein acts as the target for the cell-cycle arrest and immunosuppressive effects of the FKBP12-rapamycin complex. The ANGPTL7 gene is located in an intron of this gene.
