Here, we report that growth factor-induced mTORC1 activity is dependent on glucose sufficiency, but not on amino acids in neurons. The mechanism underlying this phenomenon is AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) activation. AMPK activation inhibits BDNF-induced mTORC1 activity through TSC2 and raptor.
