Quick Reference

A fungal metabolite, isolated from Penicillium wortmanni and other fungi, that is a fairly specific, covalent inhibitor of PI-3-kinases although it will inhibit some related kinases such as polo-like kinases, mTOR, and myosin light-chain kinase. It has a relatively short half-life in physiological solutions.
