Chemical Name: 2-[4-[[4-Hydroxy-3-(1-methylethyl)phenyl]methyl]-3,5-dimethylphenoxy]acetic acid

Biological Activity

Thyromimetic; high affinity agonist at thyroid hormone receptor (TR) β and TRα receptors (KD values are 67 and 440 pM respectively). Displays 5- and 100-fold greater potency than the endogenous agonist T3 in vitro at TRα1 and TRβ1 receptors respectively. Promotes reverse cholesterol transport in chow- and fat-fed mice. Induces proliferation of hepatocytes and pancreatic acinar cells in rats independent of prior tissue injury.

Technical Data

Soluble to 100 mM in DMSO and to 100 mM in ethanol
>98 %
Store at -20°C
