Cat. No. 4039
Chemical Name: 2-Chloro-5-[[5-[[5-(4,5-Dimethyl-2-
Biological ActivityAMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) activator. Stimulates AMPK heterotrimer (α1β1γ1) activity (EC50 = 0.3 μM). Selectively increases the activity of γ1- but not γ3-containing complexes. Thought to directly activate AMPK by antagonizing autoinhibition.
