Chemical Name: N-(2,2,2-Trifluoroethyl)-N-[4-[2,2,2-trifluoro-1-hydroxy-1-(trifluoromethyl)ethyl]phenyl]benzenesulfonamide

Biological Activity

Potent, high affinity liver X receptor (LXR) agonist (EC50 ~ 50 nM, Kd values are 7 and 22 nM for LXR-α and LXR-β respectively). Upregulates expression of the ABCA1 gene associated with cholesterol efflux regulation and HDL metabolism. Decreases amyloid-β production in primary neurons in vitro. Displays an EC50 of ~ 5 μM for activation of bile acid farnesoid X receptors (FXRs); 10-fold more potent than natural FXR ligand chenodeoxycholic acid. Also exhibits inverse agonist activity at constitutive androstane receptors (CAR).

Technical Data

Soluble to 100 mM in DMSO and to 100 mM in ethanol
>98 %
