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
Clin Cancer Res, 2017, 23(14):3756-3768. Everolimus (RAD001) purchased from Selleck.
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)
Aging (Albany NY) 2012 4(2), 119-32. Everolimus (RAD001) purchased from Selleck.
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.

|Description||Everolimus (RAD001) is an mTOR inhibitor of FKBP12 with IC50 of 1.6-2.4 nM in a cell-free assay.|
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.  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.  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.  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. |
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).

* Please note that Selleck tests the solubility of all compounds in-house, and the actual solubility may differ slightly from published values. This is normal and is due to slight batch-to-batch variations.
Calculate the mass, volume or concentration required for a solution. The Selleck molarity calculator is based on the following equation:
Mass (g) = Concentration (mol/L) × Volume (L) × 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 MSDS / 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 MSDS / 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.

Frequently Asked Questions
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?
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.
