Publication in Nature Communications: Of fly, mouse and man – uncovering TOR signaling as evolutionary conserved pathway in wound healing and skin damage responses

mTOREKO mutants fail to form a stratified and protective epidermis. mTORC1 is activated during epidermal embryogenesis in controls but downstream targets such as S6 are attenuated in mTORC1EKO mice.

The research team led by Sabine Eming, Dermatologist at the University Hospital of Cologne and Principal Investigator at the CMMC and CECAD...more
