Description AZD2014 is an orally bioavailable inhibitor of the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) with potential antineoplastic activity.
Targets&IC50 mTOR :ic50 2.8nM,   P-Akt (S473) :ic50 80nM,   PI3Kα :ic50 3.766μM,   pS6 (S235/236) :ic50 200nM,  
Kinase Assay Recombinant truncated FLAG-tagged mTOR expressed in HEK 293 cells is used in biochemical assays, together with a biotinylated p70S6K peptide substrate. Streptavidin donor and protein A acceptor beads are used to assemble the capture complex for generation of the assay signal. The activity of the lipid kinases, PI3K alpha, beta, delta, and gamma are measured using recombinant proteins and the lipid PIP2 as substrate. Assays for ATM and DNA-PK activity are performed. The mTOR cellular activity is measured in MDAMB468 cells, using an Acumen laser scanning cytometer to analyze the levels of phosphorylation of S6 (Ser235/236) and AKT (Ser473)[1].
Cell Research
AZD2014 is prepared in DMSO (10 mM) and stored under nitrogen, and then diluted with appropriate media before use[1]. Cells are plated in 96-well plates for the indicated time. For CellTiterGlo assays: CellTiterGlo is mixed with the cells. Cells are normalized to day 0 control and net growth is determined using the following formula: ((x−y)/(z−y))=net growth, where x=reading of treated sample at end of study, y=average reading on day 0, and z=reading of DMSO-treated sample at end of study. The concentration of DMSO does not exceed 0.03% for any experiment. For MTS assays: adherent cell lines are grown in 96-well plates. MTS reagent is added on day 0 and on day 3 post-AZD2014 addition. Suspension lines are assayed using the Alamar Blue reagent, 72 hours after AZD2014 addition[1].

Molecular Weight Calculator

Molarity Calculator allows you to calculate the

  • mass of a compound required to prepare a solution of known volume and concentration
  • volume of solution required to dissolve a compound of known mass to a desired concentration
  • concentration of a solution resulting from a known mass of compound in a specific volume
See Example

An example of a molarity calculation using the molarity calculator
What is the mass of compound required to make a 10 mM stock solution in 10 ml of water given that the molecular weight of the compound is 197.13 g/mol?
Enter 197.13 into the Molecular Weight (MW) box
Enter 10 into the Concentration box and select the correct unit (millimolar)
Enter 10 into the Volume box and select the correct unit (milliliter)
Press calculate
The answer of 19.713 mg appears in the Mass box


Calculator the dilution required to prepare a stock solution

Calculate the dilution required to prepare a stock solution
The dilution calculator is a useful tool which allows you to calculate how to dilute a stock solution of known concentration. Enter C1, C2 & V2 to calculate V1.

See Example

An example of a dilution calculation using the Tocris dilution calculator
What volume of a given 10 mM stock solution is required to make 20ml of a 50 μM solution?
Using the equation C1V1 = C2V2, where C1=10 mM, C2=50 μM, V2=20 ml and V1 is the unknown:
Enter 10 into the Concentration (start) box and select the correct unit (millimolar)
Enter 50 into the Concentration (final) box and select the correct unit (micromolar)
Enter 20 into the Volume (final) box and select the correct unit (milliliter)
Press calculate
The answer of 100 microliter (0.1 ml) appears in the Volume (start) box

Definitions of molecular mass, molecular weight, molar mass and molar weight:
Molecular mass (molecular weight) is the mass of one molecule of a substance and is expressed in the unified atomic mass units (u). (1 u is equal to 1/12 the mass of one atom of carbon-12)
Molar mass (molar weight) is the mass of one mole of a substance and is expressed in g/mol.
