Abstract

Mutations affecting the genes that encode upstream components in the mammalian (or mechanistic) target of rapamycin signalling pathway are associated with a group of rare inherited and developmental disorders that show overlapping clinical features. These include predisposition to a variety of benign or malignant tumours, localized overgrowth, developmental abnormalities of the brain, neurodevelopmental disorders and epilepsy. Many of these features have been linked to hyperactivation of signalling via mammalian target of rapamycin complex 1, suggesting that inhibitors of this complex such as rapamycin and its derivatives may offer new opportunities for therapy. In this review we describe this group of inherited and developmental disorders and discuss recent progress in their treatment via mTORC1 inhibition.
