|Description||Zotarolimus (ABT-578) is an analogue of rapamycin, and inhibits FKBP-12 binding with IC50 of 2.8 nM.|
|Features||Zotarolimus has a shorter in vivo half-life and is also demonstrated in rats to have less potent systemic immunosuppression than rapamycin.|
Zotarolimus (ABT-578) is a semi-synthetic analogue of rapamycin, made by substituting a tetrazole ring for the native hydroxyl group at position 42 in rapamycin. Zotarolimus is highly effective in inhibiting both smooth muscle cell and endothelial cell proliferation, with IC50 values of 2.9 nM and 2.6 nM, respectively.  Zotarolimus is mechanistically similar to sirolimus in having high-affinity binding to the immunophilin FKBP12 and comparable potency for inhibiting in vitro proliferation of both human and rat T cells. Zotarolimus inhibits Con A-induced human T cells and rat T cells proliferation with IC50 of 7.0 nM and 1337 nM respectively. 
|In vivo||Zotarolimus-eluting stents effectively reduce neointima formation in a 28-day, well-characterized swine model of coronary artery restenosis. Zotarolimus appears effective in preventing neointimal thickening, reducing late loss from 1.03 to 0.62 mm with a 47% reduction in TVF compared with bare metal stents (15.4% with the Driver stent to 8.1% with the Endeavor stent).  Zotarolimus is efficacious in suppressing adjuvant DTH, EAE, and cardiac allograft rejection with ED50 values of 1.72, 1.17, and 3.71 mg/kg/day, respectively. |
Binding Affinity to FKBP12:96-well microtiter plates are first coated with FKBP-12 CMP-KDO synthetase fusion protein at 10 μg/mL, 100 μL/well for 2-3 h, followed by addition of 50 μL/well of buffer A (2% BSA and 0.2% Tween-20 in D-PBS) for 30-60 min. Microtiter plates are then washed three times with buffer B (0.2% Tween in D-PBS, pH adjusted to 7.4). Fifty microlitres of buffer A (for maximum), 20 μM FK506 in buffer A (for background), or various concentrations of zotarolimus (10 pM-1 μM) in buffer A are added to each well followed by addition of 50 μL of A-79397 (an FK506 analogue)-alkaline phosphatase conjugate in buffer A. Microtiter plates are incubated at room temperature for 2-2.5 h followed by three washes with buffer B. About 100 μL of pNPP (p-nitrophenyl-phosphate) in 0.1 M aminomethylpropanol are added to each well and plates are incubated at room temperature for 90-120 min. Absorbance at 405 nM is read using an ELISA plate

* 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 SDS / 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 SDS / 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.
