Biological Activity

Deforolimusis (also known as Ridaforolimus, AP23573 and MK-8669) is an investigational targeted and small-molecule inhibitor of the protein mTOR, a protein that acts as a central regulator of protein synthesis, cell proliferation, cell cycle progression and cell survival, integrating signals from proteins, such as PI3K, AKT and PTEN known to be important to malignancy. Deforolimusis blocking mTOR creates a starvation-like effect in cancer cells by interfering with cell growth, division, metabolism, and angiogenesis.

Cell Experiment
Cell lines HCT-116, SK-UT-1, HT-1080, SW872, MCF-7, PC-3 cell lines
Preparation method In vitro proliferation assays. Exponentially growing cell lines were plated into two 96-well plates and incubated overnight at 37°C. Twenty-four hours after plating, 1 plate (D1) was aspirated and stored at −80°C. The other plate (D4) was treated with 10-fold serial dilutions of ridaforolimus (1,000 to 0.0001 nmol/L) or vehicle (ethanol). Following 72 hours culture at 37°C, the plates were aspirated and stored at −80°C for proliferation analysis. The D1 and D4 plates were assessed simultaneously for cell growth using the CyQUANT Cell Proliferation Assay Kit (Invitrogen). Doubling time (DT) = [0.301 × (72)/log(day4/day1)]. Doublings = 72/DT. Cell growth rate (%) = doublings ridaforolimus/doublings vehicle × 100. Imax = 100 − cell growth rate (%) at the dose at which maximum inhibition is observed. Imax was used to determine the relative sensitivity of each cell line.
Concentrations 0~1000 n M
Incubation time 72 h
Animal Experiment
Animal models mice bearing PC-3, A549, HCT-116, MCF7, and PANC-1 tumors xenograft model
Formulation diluted in a vehicle of 4% ethanol, 5% Tween 80, and 5% propylene glycol
Dosages 3 and 10 mg/kg (a) daily, 5 continuous days every other week and (b) once weekly
Administration i.p.
Conversion of different model animals based on BSA (Value based on data from FDA Draft Guidelines)
Species Mouse Rat Rabbit Guinea pig Hamster Dog
Weight (kg) 0.02 0.15 1.8 0.4 0.08 10
Body Surface Area (m2) 0.007 0.025 0.15 0.05 0.02 0.5
Km factor 3 6 12 8 5 20
Animal A (mg/kg) = Animal B (mg/kg) multiplied by  Animal B Km
Animal A Km

For example, to modify the dose of resveratrol used for a mouse (22.4 mg/kg) to a dose based on the BSA for a rat, multiply 22.4 mg/kg by the Km factor for a mouse and then divide by the Km factor for a rat. This calculation results in a rat equivalent dose for resveratrol of 11.2 mg/kg.
