Biological Activity

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.

Licensing Information
