Vistusertib (AZD2014) is a novel mTOR inhibitor with IC50 of 2.8 nM in a cell-free assay; highly selective against multiple PI3K isoforms (α/β/γ/δ). AZD2014 showed no or weak binding to the majority of kinases when tested at 1 μM. AZD2014 induces proliferation suppression, apoptosis, cell cycle arrest, and autophagy in HCC cells with antitumor activity.

AZD2014 is a close analogue of AZD8055 and a selective inhibitor of mTOR kinase. AZD2014 has greater inhibitory activity against mTORC1 compared to rapamycin: AZD2014 decreases p4EBP1 Thr37/46, inhibits the translation initiation complex and decreases overall protein synthesis while rapamycin has no effect. AZD2014 also inhibits the mTORC2 biomarkers pAKTSer473 and pNDRG1Thr346. AZD2014 has broad antiproliferative activity across multiple tumour cell lines. In particular, AZD2014 induces growth inhibition and cell death in breast cancer cell lines, including ER+ cell lines with acquired resistance to hormone therapy. 
|In vivo||AZD2014 induces tumour growth inhibition against several xenograft models including a human primary explant model of ER+ breast cancer refractory to tamoxifen. The antitumour activity is associated with modulation of both mTORC1 and mTORC2 substrates. |
|In vitro||DMSO||38 mg/mL (82.15 mM)|
|In vivo||Add solvents to the product individually and in order(Data is from Selleck tests instead of citations):
5% DMSO+30% PEG 300+ddH2O
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.

1.Please make sure the liquid is clear before adding the next solvent.
2.Be sure to add the solvent(s) in order. You must ensure that the solution obtained, in the previous addition, is a clear solution before proceeding to add the next solvent. Physical methods such as vortex, ultrasound or hot water bath can be used to aid dissolving.
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.
