Figure 4: Activation of TOR1 in microautophagy. Vam6 activates Gtr1 of the EGO complex leading to the activation of TOR1. Through the activation of TOR1, microautophagy levels increase and the cell increases protein synthesis as it returns to a growing state. MaA, typically activated in nutrient deprived conditions, is inhibited.
