|Description||Ridaforolimus (Deforolimus, MK-8669, AP23573) is a selective mTOR inhibitor with IC50 of 0.2 nM in HT-1080 cell line; while not classified as a prodrug, mTOR inhibition and FKBP12 binding is similar to rapamycin. Phase 3.|
Treatment of HT-1080 cells with Deforolimus induces a dose-dependent inhibition of phosphorylation of both S6 and 4E-BP1, with IC50 of 0.2 nM and 5.6 nM, respectively, and leads to a decrease in cell size, an increase in the proportion of cells in the G1 phase of the cell cycle, and inhibition of glucose uptake. Deforolimus displays significant antiproliferative activity a broad panel of cell lines with EC50 of 0.2-2.3 nM. Deforolimus potently and selectively inhibits VEGF production in a dose-dependent manner.  Deforolimus treatment significantly induces growth suppression in human NSCLC cell lines with IC30 values of 2.45-8.83 nM, with the exception of H157 with IC30 of >20 nM. Deforolimus treatment (2.8-5.9 nM) significantly dephosphorylates p70S6KThr389 in A549, H1703 and H157 cells, except H1666 that may express a resistant variant of mTORC1, and causes increased phosphorylation of pAKTser473 and pAKTThr308 in A549 and H1703 cells. Deforolimus in combination with the MEK inhibitors, CI-1040 or PD0325901 exhibits dose-dependent synergism in lung cancer cell lines, which is associated with the suppression of proliferation rather than enhancement of cell death, involving the inhibition of ribosomal biogenesis by 40% within 24 hours and a decreased polysome/monosome ratio. 
Administration of Deforolimus exerts significant antitumor effects in mice bearing PC-3 (prostate), HCT-116 (colon), MCF7 (breast), PANC-1 (pancreas) or A549 (lung) xenografts in a dose-dependent manner, and inhibits mTOR signaling in in SK-LMS-1 xenograft model associated with inhibition of tumor growth. 
Cell based target inhibition:HT-1080 cells are treated with increasing concentrations of Deforolimus (0-100 nM) for 2 hours, prior to harvest. Cellular lysates are extracted in denaturing lysis buffer, resolved on SDS-PAGE and transferred to PVDF membranes. After blocking, membranes are incubated with primary antibodies for 1 hour, followed by appropriate HRPconjugated secondary antibodies for 1 hour at room temperature. Immunoreactive proteins are detected using enhanced chemiluminescence and autoradiography performed by exposure to X-ray film. IC50 is determined from the inhibition of levels of phosphorylated ribosomal protein S6 (p-S6) and 4E-BP1 (p-4E-BP1).

Calculate the mass, volume or concentration required for a solution. The Selleck molarity calculator is based on the following equation:
Mass (mg) = Concentration (mM) × Volume (mL) × Molecular Weight (g/mol)
*When preparing stock solutions, please always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the via label and SDS / COA (available on product pages).
Calculate the dilution required to prepare a stock solution. The Selleck dilution calculator is based on the following equation:
Concentration (start) x Volume (start) = Concentration (final) x Volume (final)
This equation is commonly abbreviated as: C1V1 = C2V2 ( Input Output )
* When preparing stock solutions always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the vial label and SDS / COA (available online).

Definitions of molecular mass, molecular weight, molar mass and molar weight:
Molecular mass (molecular weight) is the mass of one molecule of a substance and is expressed in the unified atomic mass units (u). (1 u is equal to 1/12 the mass of one atom of carbon-12)
Molar mass (molar weight) is the mass of one mole of a substance and is expressed in g/mol.
