TOR in MCF-7 Human Cell Line. TOR was detected in immersion fixed MCF-7 human breast cancer cell line using 10 µg/mL Human/Mouse TOR Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB1537) for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained with the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL007) and counterstained with DAPI (blue).

TOR, also known as FRAP1, is a member of the PI 3-kinase-related kinase (PIKK) family. It 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.
