AZD8055 | mTOR kinase inhibitor

AZD8055 (1009298-09-2) is a potent and highly selective inhibitor of mammalian target of rapamycin kinase (mTOR) kinase (IC50 = 0.8 nM).1,2  mTOR acts as a nutrient/energy/redox sensor and a controller of protein synthesis – as such it is a very important target for cancer research.  It has been investigated as a potential chemotherapeutic for various cancers.3-7
