  • Effects on PI3K signaling. Tumor cells were treated with DMSO, BEZ-235 (5uM, 1uM), BKM-120 (5uM, 1uM), RAD-001(5uM, 1uM) or cyclopamine (2.5uM, 1uM) for 3 hr. Cells were lysed and protein was analyzed for phosphorylation of AKT and S6 (pAKT and pS6) or for GAPDH by Western blotting.

    Treatment of the BRAFi-resistant melanoma cells with the mTOR inhibitor RAD001 did lead to substantial decrease of S6 phosphorylation in the 3 BRAFi-resistant lines K028PR, M34PR, and K029PR; however, such an inhibition failed to elicit any inhibitory effect on the expression of PD-L1.

  • Effects of RAD001 on the phosphorylation levels of key components of the PI3K/Akt/mTOR pathway after 4 h of treatment with increasing concentrations of the drug. (a) Western blot analysis for mTOR and its downstream targets, p70S6K and 4EBP1. (b) Western blot analysis for Akt, GSK3-α/β and FoxO3A. In a and b, 50 μg of protein was blotted to each lane. β-actin served as a loading control.

    C) Knockdown of AURKA in RAD001 resistant FLO-1 or SK-GT-4 cells downregulated p-EIF4E (S209) and c-MYC proteins, with or without RAD001 treatment. D) Pharmacological inhibition of AURKA using alisertib led to downregulation of p-EIF4E (S209) and c-MYC proteins in FLO-1 and SK-GT-4 resistant cells, with or without RAD001 treatment

  • Cytoskeleton organisation of 786-O SuR treated with NVP-LDE225 (2.5 uM), everolimus (1 uM), and their combination for 24 h was analysed by confocal microscopy. Actin-based structures were revealed by rhodaminated phalloidin staining (red fluorescence). Localisation of focal adhesion points was obtained by immunofluorescent staining of p-paxillin (green fluorescence). Merged row images show overlapping of p-paxillin and actin signals. Moreover, all captures were shown in transmitted light. Scale bars, 10 um.

    The phenotype of nuclear blebbing was improved in RAD001 and rapamycin treated HGPS fibroblast cells. Cells were stained with DAPI (blue), laminA/C antibody (red), and progerin antibody (green) to show nuclear location and morphology. The treatment duration is for seven weeks. Mock: vehicle (DMSO, 0.025% v/v); Rap: 0.68 uM rapamycin, Rad: 0.1 uM RAD001. (Scale bar: 10 um)

  • Inhibition of mTOR activity may be responsible for sorafenib-induced down-regulation of survivin. H1299 cells were treated with the indicated concentration of RAD001 or Rapamycin for 48 h. Then H1299 cells were incubated with or without 5 μM sorafenib, with or without 5 μM RAD001, and with or without 2 μM rapamycin for 48 h.  The indicated protein levels were determined by Western blot analysis. b-Actin protein levels were measured as loading controls.

Biological Activity

Description Everolimus (RAD001) is an mTOR inhibitor of FKBP12 with IC50 of 1.6-2.4 nM in a cell-free assay.
mTOR (FKBP12) [1]
(Cell-free assay)
1.6 nM-2.4 nM
In vitro

Everolimus exhibits the immunosuppressive activity which is comparable to that of rapamycin. Everolimus competes with immobilized FK 506 for binding to biotinylated FKBP12 and shows the inhibitory effect on a two-way MLR performed with spleen cells from BALB/c and CBA mice with IC50 of 0.12-1.8 nM. [1] Everolimus also shows antiangiogenic/vascular effects in VEGF-induced HUVEC proliferation with IC50 of 0.12 nM and bFGF-induced HUVEC proliferation with IC50 of 0.8 nM, respectively. [2] A recent study shows that Everolimus shows a dose-dependent inhibitory effects on both the total cells and the stem cells from the BT474 cell line and the primary breast cancer cells with IC50 of 156 nM in total cells of primary breast cancer cells and 71 nM in total cells of BT474 cells. In addition, combination treatment with Everolimus and trastuzumab produces the significantly increased inhibition on the growth of cancer stem cells with the inhibition rate increased by more than 50 %.

In vivo Everolimus (0.1 to 10 mg/kg) dose-dependently inhibits growth of the primary (ear) and lymph node metastases of B16/BL6 melanoma, with decreased total number of vessels and reduced mature vessels. [2] In a xenograft animal model of BT474 stem cells, Everolimus shows significant reductions in mean tumor sizes (590.6 mm3), compared to the control group with a tumor size of 698 mm3. Furthermore, combination treatment with Everolimus and trastuzumab significantly decreases the xenograft tumor size (410.8 mm3) more than Everolimus treatment alone. [3]

FKBP12 binding assay & Mixed lymphocyte reaction (MLR) :

FKBP12 binding assay: Binding to the FK 506 binding protein (FKBP12) is indirectly assessed by means of an ELISA-type competition assay. FK 506 is included in each individual experiment as a standard, and the inhibitory activity is expressed as relative IC50 compared to FK 506 (rIC50 = IC50 Everolimus/IC50 FK 506). Mixed lymphocyte reaction (MLR): The immunosuppressive activities of RAP and its derivatives are assessed in a two-way MLR, using spleen cells of BALB/c and CBA mice. RAP is included in each individual experiment as a standard, and the inhibitory activity is expressed as relative IC50 compared to RAP (rIC50 = IC50 Everolimus/IC50 RAP).

  • Cell lines: BT474 cell line and the primary breast cancer cells
  • Concentrations: 0.001-10 μM
  • Incubation Time: 24 hours
  • Method: The 3-(4-5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide dye reduction assay (MTT assay) is used to compare the effects of Everolimus or trastuzumab on total breast cancer cells and breast CSCs. The total cells and the stem cells from the BT474 cell line and the primary breast cancer cells are respectively seeded into 96-well plates with different concentrations of the drugs, with five wells for each concentration, and the cells are cultured at 37 °C with 5 % CO2 in an incubator for 24 hours. The concentrations of Everolimus are 1 nM, 10 nM, 100 nM, 1 μM and 10 μM, and the concentrations of trastuzumab are 0.5 μg/mL, 1 μg/mL, 10 μg/mL, 50 μg/mL, and 100 μg/mL. The combinatorial inhibitory effect of Everolimus and Trastuzumab on the in vitro growth of breast CSCs is examined by MTT assay as well using 10 μg/mL trastuzumab in combination of increasing concentrations of everolimus (1 nM, 10 nM, 100 nM and 1 μM). After drug treatment for 24 hours, 20 μL MTT [5 mg/mL in phosphate buffered saline (PBS)] is added to each well, and the cells are incubated at 37 °C with 5 % CO2 and saturated humidity for 4 hours. Following the subsequent removal of the supernatant, 150 μL dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) is added to each well, and the cells are vortexed for 10 minutes. The light absorbance (OD value) is measured for each well using an ELISA reader. Each experiment is repeated in triplicate, and dose–response curves are plotted. The probit software of the statistical software package SPSS 17.0 for Windows is used to calculate the inhibitory concentration (IC50) of Everolimus.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Question 1:

    For the in vivo work, I know the drug needs to be dissolved in 30% propylene glycol (dilution in water) and 5%Tween 80. Would the final solution be a clear liquid or a turbid suspension?

  • Answer:

    Our S1120 Everolimus (RAD001) in 30% Propylene glycol+5% Tween 80+ddH2O at 5mg/ml is a clear solution. And for oral gavage, there is another common vehicle, 1% CMC Na. Everolimus can be dissolved in it at 30mg/ml as a suspension.
