Chemical Name 3,27-Epoxy-3H-pyrido[2,1-c][1,4]oxaazacyclohentriacontine, rapamycin deriv.; 40-O-(2-Hydroxyethyl)rapamycin; 42-O-(2-Hydroxy)ethyl rapamycin; Certican; RAD; RAD 001; SDZ-RAD; XIENCE V
Biological Description Everolimus is a macrolide derived from Rapamycin, and shown to inhibit cell proliferation induced by growth factors. Macrolides belong to a group of antibiotics that bind to the 50S ribosomal subunit and inhibit protein synthesis. Studies indicate that Everolimus is an mTOR inhibitor that displays high affinity toward the intracellular receptor FKBP12. The Everolimus-FKBP12 complex decreases the activity of the S6K1 and 4EBP by binding to mTOR
