Cat. No. 2864
Chemical Name: N,N-Dimethylimidodicarbonimidic diamide hydrochloride
Biological ActivityAntidiabetic agent; lowers plasma glucose levels and improves insulin sensitivity. Inhibits hepatic gluconeogenesis via activation of the LKB1/AMPK pathway. Displays antiproliferative effects in cancer cell lines. Activates the aPKC-CBP pathway in neural precursors to promote neurogenesis.
