Biological Activity for Fatostatin A

Fatostatin A is an inhibitor of sterol regulatory element binding protein (SREBP); impairs the activation of SREBP-1 and SREBP-2. Exhibits antiproliferative effects in DU 145 cells independently of IGF-1 signaling (IC50 = 0.1 μM); reverses hyperglycemia in diabetic (ob/ob) mice. Cell permeable.
