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.
