The mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) is a protein kinase that has a well established role in the regulation of a range of cellular functions in response to hormones, growth factors and amino acids (Wang & Proud 2011). The role of mTOR signalling in the regulation of milk protein synthesis in the mammary gland of ruminants is not well understood. Understanding this mechanism is an important step towards developing intervention strategies on farm, such as the supply of nutrients, to modulate milk protein output.
