7/8/2019 Regina’s collaborative paper with postdoc Clive Chung in the Dan Nomura lab is out in Nature Chemical Biology! Covalent targeting of the v-ATPase provides a new avenue for mTORC1 inhibition and autophagy activation, also sheds light on how the v-ATPase regulates mTORC1. Accompanied by a very nice N&Vs by Delong Meng and Jenna Jewell.
