Torin 2 is a potent and selective mTOR inhibitor with IC50 of 0.25 nM in p53−/− MEFs cell line; 800-fold greater selectivity for mTOR than PI3K and improved pharmacokinetic properties. Inhibition of ATM/ATR/DNA-PK with EC50 of 28 nM/35 nM/118 nM,in PC3 cell lines respectively. Torin 2 decreases cell viability and induces autophagy and apoptosis.

|Description||Torin 2 is a potent and selective mTOR inhibitor with IC50 of 0.25 nM in p53−/− MEFs cell line; 800-fold greater selectivity for mTOR than PI3K and improved pharmacokinetic properties. Inhibition of ATM/ATR/DNA-PK with EC50 of 28 nM/35 nM/118 nM,in PC3 cell lines respectively. Torin 2 decreases cell viability and induces autophagy and apoptosis.|
Torin 2 has the same binding mode as PI3Kγ, V882 serves as a hinge binding point and in the inner hydrophobic pocket Y867, D841 and D964 provide three more hydrogen bonds with aminopyridine side chain analogous to Y2225, D2195 and D2357 of mTOR.  Torin 2 inhibits mTORC1, thus activates TFEB by promoting its nuclear translocation with EC50 of 1.666 mM.  Torin 2(< 50 nM) causes a significant reduction in viability of both MZ-CRC-1 and TT cells. Torin 2 (100 nM) exerts a significant reduction of migration of both MZ-CRC-1 and TT cells. 
Torin 2 exhibits >95% pharmacodynamic response and half-time of 11.7 min in the mouse liver microsome stability study. Torin 2 exhibits the best bioavailability (51%), short half-life (0.72 hours) and low clearance(19.6 mL/min/kg) in male Swiss albino mice following intravenous and oral administration.  Torin 2(20mg/kg) ablates MYCN tumors with reduction in MYCN protein levels and induction of apoptosis in Th-MYCN mice. 
mTOR and PI3K Cellular Assays:Cellular IC50 values for mTOR are determined using p53−/− MEFs. Cells are treated with vehicle or increasing concentrations of Torin 2 for 1 h and then lyse. Phosphorylation of S6K1 Thr-389 is monitored by immunoblotting using a phospho-specific antibody. Meanwhile, cellular IC50 values for PI3Ka are determined based on phosphorylation of Akt Thr-308 in p53−/−/mLST8−/− MEFs or human PC3 cells expressing the S473D mutant of Akt1.
|In vitro||DMSO||20 mg/mL (46.25 mM)|
|In vivo||Add solvents to the product individually and in order(Data is from Selleck tests instead of citations):
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.
