Cat.No. 4837 - AZD 3988 | C23H22F2N4O4 | CAS No. 892489-52-0
Description: Potent and selective DGAT-1 inhibitor
Chemical Name: trans-4-[-[[[5-[(3,4-Difluorophenyl)amino]-1,3,4-oxadiazol-2-yl]carbonyl]amino]phenyl]cyclohexaneacetic acid
Purity: ≥98% (HPLC)

Biological Activity

Potent and selective diacylglycerol acyltransferase (DGAT-1) inhibitor (IC50 = 0.6 nM). Exhibits selectivity for DGAT-1 over DGAT-2, Kv11.1 (hERG) and cytochrome P450 enzymes. Suppresses triacylglyceride (TAG) plasma excursion and adipose tissue TAG synthesis in rats. Reduces body weight of diet-induced obese rats. Cell permeable and orally bioavailable.
