Biological Activity for GW 7647

GW 7647 is a potent and highly selective PPARα agonist (EC50 values are 6, 1100 and 6200 nM for human PPARα, PPARγ and PPARδ receptors respectively). Modulates oleate metabolism and mitochondrial enzyme gene expression in mature myotubules in vitro. Has lipid-lowering effects following oral administration in vivo. Reduces NO production in macrophages; exhibits anti-inflammatory properties.

PPAR alpha agonists inhibit nitric oxide production by enhancing iNOS degradation in LPS-treated macrophages..
By GAJANAN KATKAR on 12/07/2019
Assay Type: In Vitro
Species: Mouse
Cell Line/Tissue: J774 murine macrophages

GW7647 is the most potent PPARalpha agonist that reduces LPS-induced iNOS expression and NO production in macrophages by enhancing iNOS protein degradation through the proteasome pathway. Concentration 3, 10 and 30 uM showed dose-dependent inhibition.
