Chemical Name: [4-[[[2-[3-Fluoro-4-(trifluoromethyl)phenyl]-4-methyl-5-thiazolyl]methyl]thio]-2-methylphenoxy]acetic acid

Biological Activity

Potent and highly selective PPARδ agonist. EC50 values are 0.001, 1.1 and 2 μM for transactivation of human PPARδ, -α, and -γ receptors respectively. Neuroprotective in rat cerebellar granule neuronal cultures after brief (12-hour) exposure but exhibits inherent toxicity after prolonged (48-hour) incubation. Increases rate of fatty acid oxidation and protects against ischemia/reperfusion injury in neonatal and adult cardiomyocytes.

Licensing Information

Sold for research purposes under agreement from GlaxoSmithKline

Technical Data
