Biological Activity for Mitoglitazone
Mitoglitazone is an insulin sensitizer; enhances insulin sensitivity and lowers blood-glucose levels in diabetic mouse models. Inhibits mitochondria pyruvate carriers; increases mitochondrial respiration rates, leading to a reduction in expression of lipogenic enzymes. Suppresses gluconeogenesis and lipogenesis in primary hepatocytes. Exhibits low binding affinity and activity at PPARγ (EC50 = 23.7 μM).
