    Glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor activation stimulates PKA-mediated phosphorylation of Raptor and this contributes to the weight loss effect of liraglutide

    Thao DV Le, Dianxin Liu ... Julio E Ayala
    The ability of the therapeutic glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonist liraglutide to promote weight loss is partly dependent on signaling via PKA-dependent phosphorylation of the mTORC1 regulator protein Raptor.
