Table 2: Effects of the PI3K/mTOR inhibitors on heart and liver cellular respiration. For each measurement, a tissue fragment was collected from C57BL/6 mouse and processed immediately for measuring cellular respiration in RPMI with and without designated concentrations of the drugs. The values of k c are mean ± SD (n); n=number of animals. Each measurement is a separate experiment.
