Biological Activity for Torin 1

Torin 1 is a potent and selective ATP-competitive mTOR inhibitor (IC50 = 2 - 10 nM for mTORC1 and mTORC2). Torin 1 displays 200-fold selectivity for mTOR over DNA-PK, ATM and hVps34. In HeLa cells, Torin 1 induces autophagy. Torin 1 impairs cell growth and proliferation by suppression of the rapamycin-resistant functions of mTORC1. In human monocytes and myeloid dendritic cells, Torin 1 prevents decreases the anti-inflammatory potency of glucocorticoids. In the human endocrine cell line BON, Torin 1 increases neurotensin secretion and gene expression through MEK/ERK/c-Jun pathway activation.

Assay Type: Ex Vivo
Species: Mouse
Cell Line/Tissue: acute brain slices

We used Torin-1 to inhibit torin signalling, we got the expected effect on metabolic changes in acute brain slices

30 minute pre-incubation on acute slices

mTOR Signaling Pathway

mTOR Signaling Pathway

mTOR is a serine/threonine kinase that nucleates at multiprotein complexes mTORC1 and mTORC2. Signaling by these complexes regulates cell growth, proliferation and survival.
