Rapamycin was initially discovered as an antifungal metabolite produced by Streptomyces hygroscopicus and since has been found to possess immunosuppressive and anti-proliferative properties. Rapamycin is a potent inhibitor of antigen-induced proliferation of T cells, B cells, and antibody production and therefore is commonly used for immunosuppressive therapy in organ transplantation.
More recently Rapamycin has been recognized for its anti-aging properties associated with its ability to inhibit mTOR. The mTOR gene has been implicated in many of the processes that are associated with aging, including cellular senescence, immune responses, cell stem regulation, autophagy, mitochondrial function, and protein homeostasis (proteostasis). Furthermore, Rapamycin’s inhibition of mTOR has been shown to regulate cell senescence thus reducing age-related pathology and loss of function, and ultimately improving physiological function and extending longevity.
