Chemical Name: 2-[[4-(Diethylamino)-2-hydroxyphenyl]methylene]hydrazide-4-pyridinecarboxylic acid

Biological Activity

AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) activator (EC50 = 1 μM); activates AMPK indirectly through a CaMKKβ-dependent mechanism. Also inhibits LPS-induced STAT3 phosphorylation (IC50 = 0.5 μM). Induces autophagy and promotes Aβ degradation in vitro. Also inhibits adipogenesis in vitro and reduces weight gain in diet-induced obese mice.

Technical Data

Soluble to 50 mM in DMSO and to 5 mM in ethanol
>98 %
Store at -20°C
