Cat. No. 3336
Chemical Name: 6,7-Dihydro-4-hydroxy-3-(2'-hydroxy[
Biological ActivityPotent, reversible AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) activator (EC50 = 0.8 μM) that displays selectivity towards β1 subunit-containing heterotrimers. Inhibits fatty acid synthesis (IC50 = 3.2 μM) and decreases plasma glucose and triglyceride levels in vivo. Also inhibits proliferation of mesenchymal stem cells, and impedes reprogramming of mouse embryonic fibroblasts to iPSCs.
