Product overview

  • Name
    Torin 1
  • Short description
    Potent, selective mTOR inhibitor
  • Biological description
    Potent, selective and ATP-competitive mTOR inhibitor (IC50 vales are 2 and 10 nM at mTORC1 and mTORC2 respectively). Exhibits 1000-fold selecticity for mTOR over PI3K and ~100-fold selectivity when compared to 450 other protein kinases. Impairs cell growth and proliferation to a greater degree than rapamycin.
