As a component of the GATOR subcomplex GATOR2, functions within the amino acid-sensing branch of the TORC1 signaling pathway (PubMed:23723238, PubMed:27166823). Indirectly activates mTORC1 and the TORC1 signaling pathway through the inhibition of the GATOR1 subcomplex (PubMed:23723238). It is negatively regulated by the upstream amino acid sensors SESN2 and CASTOR1 (PubMed:26449471, PubMed:26586190, PubMed:27487210). In addition to its role in regulation of the TORC1 complex, promotes the acidification of lysosomes and facilitates autophagic flux (PubMed:27166823).
