Drug Name Trade Name Synonyms Drug Classes Drug Description
Buparlisib BKM-120|BKM120 PI3K Inhibitor (Pan) 34 Buparlisib (BKM120) specifically inhibits class I PI3K in the PI3K/AKT kinase (or protein kinase B) signaling pathway in an ATP-competitive manner, and may result in apoptotic activity and inhibition of cell proliferation (PMID: 22188813).
Paclitaxel Taxol 7-Epipaclitaxel Antimicrotubule Agent 11 BCL2 Family Inhibitor 6 Taxol (paclitaxel) binds to tubulin to inhibit microtubule disassembly, which results in decreased cell division, and also binds to the anti-apoptotic factor Bcl-2, promoting apoptosis (NCI Drug Dictionary).
