|Description||XL388 is a highly potent, selective, ATP-competitive inhibitor of mTOR with IC50 of 9.9 nM, 1000-fold selectivity over the closely related PI3K kinases.|
In MCF-7 cells, XL388 blocks mTORC1 phosphorylation of p70S6K (T389)with an IC50 value of 94 nM and blocks mTORC2 phosphorylationof AKT (S473) with an IC50 value of 350 nM. In vitro, XL388 inhibits the viability of solid and hematopoietic tumor cell lines. The proliferation IC50 is 1.37 μM in MCF-7 cell line. XL388 also synergizes with chemotherapeutics in cell-based assays to block cell viability. 
|In vivo||When dosed orally once daily in mice, XL388 shows robust anti-tumor activity in multiple xenograft models including > 100% tumor growth inhibition in the MCF-7 xenograft model.  XL388 displays good pharmacokinetics and oral exposure in multiple species with moderate bioavailability. The mean plasma protein binding of XL388 in human, monkey, dog, rat, and mouse plasma is evaluated at 5 μM and is determined to be 86%, 90%, 89%, 85%, and 84%, respectively. Oral administration of XL388 to athymic nude mice implanted with human tumor xenografts afforded significant and dose-dependent antitumor activity. Strong inhibition of both mTORC1 and mTORC2 is achieved 4−8 h following administration orally at 100 mg/kg. Modest inhibition (39−45%) of phosphorylation of the PI3K target AKT (T308) is also observed 4−8 h post dose.|
|In vitro||DMSO||23 mg/mL (50.49 mM)|
|In vivo||Add solvents to the product individually and in order(Data is from Selleck tests instead of citations):
30% PEG400+0.5% Tween80+5% propylene glycol
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.
