The RNA-binding protein LARP1 has generated interest in recent years for its role in the mTOR signalling cascade and its regulation of terminal oligopyrimidine (TOP) mRNA translation. Paradoxically, some scientists have shown that LARP1 represses TOP translation while others that LARP1 activates it. Here, we present opinions from four leading scientists in the field to discuss these and other contradictory findings.
