HCC cell lines (HepG2 and SMMC-7721) or the primary human HCC cells (“HCC-1/-2”) were treated with AT406 (at applied concentrations) or plus OSI-027 (“OSI”, 100 nM), cells were further cultured for indicated periods of time, the caspase-3 activity (A, for HepG2 cells) was tested; Cell apoptosis was tested by the ssDNA ELISA assay (B, F–H) or the TUNEL staining assay (C, for HepG2 cells). HepG2 cells were pretreated with the caspase-3 specific inhibitor z-DEVD-fmk (50 μM) or the general caspase inhibitor z-VAD-fmk (50 μM) for 1 hour, followed by AT406 (10 μM) plus OSI-027 (100 nM) combination treatment (“Both”), cells were further cultured and subjected to ssDNA ELISA assay of apoptosis (D) and MTT assay of cell viability (E). “Veh” stands for 0.2% of DMSO (D and E). *indicated statistically significant differences as compared to “Ctrl” group. #indicated statistically significant differences as compared to “AT406” only group (A–C, F–H). ##indicated statistically significant differences as compared to “Both” group (D and E).

|Description||OSI-027 is a selective and potent dual inhibitor of mTORC1 and mTORC2 with IC50 of 22 nM and 65 nM in cell-free assays, and more than 100-fold selectivity observed for mTOR than PI3Kα, PI3Kβ, PI3Kγ or DNA-PK. Phase 1.|
OSI-027 shows the selective and ATP competitive inhibition activities against mTORC1 and mTORC2 with IC50 of 22 nM and 65 nM, respectively. In addition, OSI-027 inhibits mTOR signaling of phospho-4E-BP1 with an IC50 of 1 μM in cell-based assays.  OSI-027 exhibits anti-proliferative activities against several acute leukemia cell lines of myeloid/megakaryocytic origin in a dose-dependent manner, including U937, KG-1, KBM-3B, ML-1, HL-60, and MEG-01 cells.  A recent study shows that inhibition of mTORC1/2 by OSI-027 effectively suppresses phosphorylation of Akt (S473) and cell proliferation in breast cancer cells. 
|In vivo||In GEO colorectal xenograft, OSI-027 (65 mg/kg) inhibits both mTORC1 and mTORC2 effectors, including 4E-BP1, Akt, and S6 phosphorylation. Furthermore, mTORC1 and mTORC2 inhibition together by OSI-027 potently inhibits tumor growth more than mTORC1 inhibition by rapamycin. |
Biochemical assays:mTORC1 and mTORC2 inhibition is assayed using native enzyme complex immunoprecipitated from HeLa lysates at 1 mM ATP. To prepare whole cell lysates from HeLa cells, 25 g cell pellet is lysed in 60 mL of ice-cold buffer A [40 mM HEPES (pH 7.5), 120 mM NaCl, 1 mM EDTA, 10 mM sodium pyrophosphate, 10 mM glycerophosphate, 50 mM NaF, 0.5 mM orthovanadate, and EDTA-free protease inhibitors containing 0.3% CHAPS] for 30 minutes on a magnetic stirrer in a cold room. After clearing of the lysates by centrifugation at 13,000 g for 10 minutes, Protein G-coated 384-well plates are incubated with 0.25 μg of mTOR antibody in 15 μL of buffer A for 1 hour at 4 °C. To each well, 40 μg of HeLa cell lysate in 15 μL of buffer A is added and incubated overnight at 4 °C to immunoprecipitate mTOR complexes. Plates are washed 3 times with buffer A and twice with immunoprecipitation wash buffer [Buffer B: 50 mM HEPES (pH 7.5) and 150 mM NaCl]. OSI-027 is added at 10 μM concentration to each well and DMSO is added to the control wells. The reaction is started by adding 150 ng of His-tagged 4E-BP1 as a substrate in the presence or absence of 100 μM ATP to each well in 25 μL of freshly prepared kinase buffer [Buffer C: 20 mM HEPES (pH 7.5), 10 mM MgCl2, 4 mM MnCl2, 10 mM β-mercaptoethanol, and 200 μM vanadate] and incubated at room temperature (RT) for 30 minutes. The reaction is stopped by transferring 25 μL of reaction mixture from each well to corresponding wells of fresh Ni-chelate-coated plates and incubated overnight at 4 °C followed by 2 hours at 37 °C. To detect phosphorylation of 4E-BP1, the plates are washed once with TBST (Tris-buffered saline containing 0.1% Tween-20) containing 5% skim milk powder. To each well, 25 μL of 1:1,000 diluted phospho-4E-BP1 antibodies in TBST containing 5% skim milk are added and incubated for 1 hour at RT. The plates are washed once with TBST and then 25 μL of anti-rabbit HRP (diluted 1:10,000) in TBST containing 5% skim milk is added. The plates are incubated for 1 hour at RT and washed 5 times with TBST. For detection of phospho-4E-BP1, 25 μL of chemiluminescent reagents A+B is added and chemiluminescence is measured using an Analyst plate reader.

|In vivo||Add solvents to the product individually and in order(Data is from Selleck tests instead of citations):
1% DMSO+30% polyethylene glycol+1% Tween 80
For best results, use promptly after mixing.
* 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 (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 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.
