Biological Activity for GW 9662

GW 9662 is a selective irreversible PPARγ antagonist (IC50 values are 3.3, 32 and 2000 nM for PPARγ, PPARα and PPARδ respectively). Blocks the inhibition of osteoclast formation induced by IL-4 in the low micromolar range (1-2 μM), therefore is more potent than BADGE. Anticancer, inhibits growth of human mammary tumor cell lines.

GW 9662 partially inhibits 15d-PGJ2-mediated pp42/44 activation..
By Chintan Koyani on 12/10/2018
Assay Type: In Vitro
Species: Mouse
Cell Line/Tissue: HL-1 cardiomyocytes

HL-1 cardiomyocytes were incubated with GW 9662 (2 µM) for 30 min prior to addition of 15 µM 15d-PGJ2 for 30 min. Preincubation of cells with GW 9662 partially abolished activation of p42/44 MAPK, while Tesaglitazar and T 0070907 inhibited the activation completely.
