RICTOR a regulatory binding partner of the kinase mTOR. Part of a rapamycin-insensitive and raptor-independent pathway that regulates the cytoskeleton. Rictor interacts with Cullin1-Rbx1 to form an E3 ubiquitin ligase complex, and promotes ubiquitination and degradation of SGK1. Shares homology with pianissimo from D. discoidieum, STE20p from S. pombe, and AVO3p from S. cerevisiae. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
