It is one of impurity present in Rapamycin, Rapamycin works by inhibiting T-lymphocyte activation and proliferation stimulated by antigens and cytokines such as interleukin (IL)-2, IL-4, and IL-15. In target cells rapamycin binds to the cytoplasmic receptor FK506-binding protein-12, which is a serine threonine-specific protein kinase that regulates cell growth, proliferation, survival, mobility, and angiogenesis.mTOR regulates the downstream signaling pathways involved in cell survival, such as the phosphatidylinositol-3 kinase signaling pathway. which is used to prevent organ transplant rejections and treat lymphangioleiomyomatosis.
