Detection of Human/Mouse/Rat TOR by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of MCF‑7 human breast cancer cell line, Balb/3T3 mouse embryonic fibroblast cell line, and NRK rat normal kidney cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Human/Mouse/Rat TOR Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF15371) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF109). A specific band was detected for TOR at approximately 280 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

The Target of Rapamycin (TOR) is a member of the PI 3-kinase-related kinase (PIKK) family. TOR is the protein target of rapamycin, an anti-rejection drug used in transplantation and promising anti-cancer agent. TOR plays a crucial role in the control of cell growth and proliferation as a downstream target of the PI 3-kinase/Akt signal transduction pathway.
