Chemical Name: 3-[4-(2,4-Bis-trifluoromethylbenzyloxy)-3-methoxyphenyl]-2-cyano-N-(5-trifluoromethyl-1,3,4-thiadiazol-2-yl)acrylamide

Biological Activity

Selective ERRα antagonist/inverse agonist (IC50 = ~400 nM). Displays no antagonist activity at ERRγ or ERα at concentrations below 10 μM. Interferes with PPARγ coactivator-1α (PGC-1α)/ERRα-dependent signaling: inhibits PGC-1α induction of ERRα and MAO-B gene expression and downregulates the constitutive transcriptional activity of ERRα in numerous cell lines.

Technical Data

Soluble to 10 mM in DMSO with gentle warming
>99 %
Store at +4°C
