    Zotarolimus

    $91.43 - $320.02
    Zotarolimus is a semi-synthetic macrocyclic lactone prepared from rapamycin by preparation of the 42-triflate ester, followed by displacement with tetrazole and purification of the two isomeric products. This structural change affords a less bioavailable product, a preferred profile for some applications. Zotarolimus is extensively cited in the literature with over 200 citations.
    Mechanism of ActionZotarolimus binds to a receptor protein (FKBP12). The complex then binds to mTOR preventing it from interacting with target proteins.
    Molecular FormulaC52H79N5O12
