comment RHEB senses amino acids in order to recruit mTOR. Do we know if RHEB is more sensitive to some amino acids (like methionine) than other amino acids?
Might be a good question in the context of your class, but that doesn't make it a good question for this forum since it does not provide any of the necessary context to readers.
