  • Antibiotic [1].
  • Potent anti-neutrophil agent with cardioprotective effects [1, 13].
  • mTOR, DNA-PK, phosphatidylinositol 4-kinases, myosin light chain kinase (MLCK) and mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) inhibitor at high concentrations [2, 5, 14].
  • Potent cell permeable and selective inhibitor of phosphatidyl-inositol 3-kinase (PI3K) [3, 4].
  • Similar potency in vitro for the class I, II, and III PI3K.
  • Antitumor compound. [6] Radiosensitizing agent [8].
  • Adipogenesis inhibitor [5, 7]. Angiogenesis inhibitor. [10] 
  • Autophagy inhibitor, regardless of the nutrient status and thus is a more suitable autophagy inhibitor than 3-MA [12,18].
