Cat. No. 3114
Alternative Name: Rezulin
Chemical Name: 5-[[4-[(3,4-Dihydro-6-hydroxy-2,5,7
Biological ActivitySelective PPARγ receptor agonist (EC50 values are 780 and 555 nM at murine and human PPARγ receptors respectively). Displays no activity at PPARα or PPARδ receptors. Antidiabetic agent; exerts potent glucose-lowering effects in insulin-resistant diabetic mice. Displays anti-invasive effect on human breast cancer cells; reduces migration, adhesion and spreading on fibronectin-coated plates. Also inhibits cell growth of hematopoietic cell lines.
