Product Information:

Torin-1 is a potent and selective mTOR inhibitor. The apoptosis-inducing mTOR inhibitor Torin-1 hindered growth, motility, invasion, and survival of CoCSCs in vitro, and suppressed tumor growth in vivo with a concomitant reduction in vessel formation. Torin-1 also affected the expression of markers for cell proliferation, angio-/lympho-genesis, and stemness in vivo, including Ki67, DLL1, DLL4, Notch, Lgr5, and CD44. Importantly, Torin-1 did not affect the survival of normal colon stem cells in vivo, suggesting its selectivity towards cancer cells.

In Vitro

Torin1 (250 nM) completely inhibits proliferation and causes a G1/S cell cycle arrest, and decreases cell size to a greater degree than 50 nM rapamycin in wild-type MEFs. Torin1 has more than 800-fold selectivity between mTOR and PI3Kis, and is very selective relative to other PIKK family kinases with the exception of DNA-PK.


In Vivo

Torin1 (20 mg/kg, i.p.) is efficacious in a U87MG xenograft model, and demonstrates good pharmacodynamic inhibition of downstream effectors of mTOR in tumor and peripheral tissues.
