Cat. No. 1508
Chemical Name: 2-Chloro-5-nitro-N-phenylbenzamide
Biological ActivitySelective PPARγ antagonist (IC50 values are 3.3, 32 and 2000 nM for PPARγ, PPARα and PPARδ respectively). Blocks the inhibition of osteoclast formation induced by IL-4 in the low micromolar range (1-2 μM), therefore is more potent than BADGE (Cat. No. 1326). Anticancer, inhibits growth of human mammary tumor cell lines.
