Study published in Molecular and Cellular Proteomics

Date Posted: Monday, April 13, 2020


Dr. Camila Martinez-Calejman builds off her recent study published in Nature Communications to further explore downstream mTORC2 signaling in brown adipocytes. Collaborating with a proteomics lab at the University of Washington, Camila examined time dependent changes in mTORC2 signaling following insulin stimulation in mature brown adipocytes.

The findings support her previous work identifying ATP-citrate lyase as an mTORC2-sensitive phospho-protein in brown adipocytes and uncover additional interesting features about the mTORC2 regulated proteome and phospho-proteome that may be relevant in type 2 diabetes and cancer.
