FunctionSubunit of mTORC2, which regulates cell growth and survival in response to hormonal signals. mTORC2 is activated by growth factors, but, in contrast to mTORC1, seems to be nutrient-insensitive. mTORC2 seems to function upstream of Rho GTPases to regulate the actin cytoskeleton, probably by activating one or more Rho-type guanine nucleotide exchange factors. mTORC2 promotes the serum-induced formation of stress-fibers or F-actin. mTORC2 plays a critical role in AKT1 'Ser-473' phosphorylation, which may facilitate the phosphorylation of the activation loop of AKT1 on 'Thr-308' by PDK1 which is a prerequisite for full activation. mTORC2 regulates the phosphorylation of SGK1 at 'Ser-422'. mTORC2 also modulates the phosphorylation of PRKCA on 'Ser-657'. Plays an essential role in embryonic growth and development.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the RICTOR family.
modificationsPhosphorylated by MTOR; when part of mTORC2. Phosphorylated at Thr-1135 by RPS6KB1; phosphorylation of RICTOR inhibits mTORC2 and AKT1 signaling.

Lane 1: Wild-type HAP1 whole cell lysate (20 µg)
Lane 2: RICTOR knockout HAP1 whole cell lysate (20 µg)
Lane 3: HeLa whole cell lysate (20 µg)
Lane 4: HEK293 whole cell lysate (20 µg)
Lanes 1 - 4: Merged signal (red and green). Green - ab105469 observed at 192 kDa. Red - loading control, ab18058, observed at 130 kDa.
ab105469 was shown to recognize RICTOR in wild-type HAP1 cells as signal was lost at the expected MW in RICTOR knockout cells. Additional cross-reactive bands were observed in the wild-type and knockout cells. Wild-type and RICTOR knockout samples were subjected to SDS-PAGE. ab105469 and ab18058 (Mouse anti-Vinculin loading control) were incubated overnight at 4°C at 1 µg/mL and 1/20000 dilution respectively. Blots were developed with Goat anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (IRDye® 800CW) preabsorbed ab216773 and Goat anti-Mouse IgG H&L (IRDye® 680RD) preabsorbed ab216776 secondary antibodies at 1/20000 dilution for 1 hour at room temperature before imaging.

ICC/IF image of ab105469 stained HepG2 cells. The cells were 4% formaldehyde fixed (10 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab105469, 5µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was ab96899, DyLight® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/250 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM. This antibody also gave a positive result in 4% formaldehyde fixed (10 min) MCF7 cells at 5µg/ml.
