Tuberous sclerosis 1 (TSC1) encodes for a protein, hamartin, that interacts with a protein encoded by the TSC2 gene, tuberin (Genetics Home Reference 2013). TSC1 acts as a tumor suppressor, through regulation of the mTOR pathway, which is involved in cell proliferation (Genetics Home Reference 2013; Sjodahl et al. 2011).
