Description: Potent and selective allosteric activator of AMPK
Chemical Name: 6-Chloro-5-[4-(1-hydroxycyclobutyl)phenyl]-1H-indole-3-carboxylic acid
Purity: ≥98% (HPLC)

Biological Activity

Potent and selective allosteric activator of AMPK (EC50 values are 7 and >40000 nM for AMPKα1β1γ1 and AMPKα1β2γ1, respectively). Exhibits minimal off-target effects on a panel of receptors, ion channels, PDEs and kinases. Improves kidney function and reduces proteinuria in a preclinical model of diabetic nephropathy. Orally bioavailable.
