Biological Activity for GW 501516

GW 501516 is a potent and selective PPARδ agonist (EC50 = 1.2 nM). Displays <1000-fold selectivity over other PPAR subtypes. Increases ABC A1 transporter expression and induces apolipoprotein A1-mediated cholesterol efflux in vitro. Also increase serum HDL cholesterol and lowers small, dense LDL levels in obesity in vivo models.
