Chemical Name: N-(4-Chlorophenyl)-1-[3-(2-furanyl)benzoyl]-3-piperidinecarboxamide

Biological Activity

Antifibrotic agent; inhibits fibrosis by targeting the MRTF/SRF gene transcription pathway. Selectively inhibits proliferation of SSc-derived dermal fibroblasts but not that of normal fibroblasts. Inhibits expression of CTGF, α-SMA, and COL1A2 in SSc fibroblasts as well as in LPA and in TGFβ-stimulated fibroblasts. Prevents bleomycin-induced skin thickening and collagen deposition in vivo. Also suppresses PC-3 cell migration in scratch wound assays (IC50 = 4.2 μM).

Technical Data

Soluble to 50 mM in DMSO
>98 %
Store at +4°C
