Cat.No. 3291 - PF 915275 | C18H14N4O2S | CAS No. 857290-04-1
Description: Potent and selective 11β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase inhibitor
Chemical Name: N-(6-Amino-2-pyridinyl)-4'-cyano-[1,1'-biphenyl]-4-sulfonamide
Purity: ≥98% (HPLC)

Biological Activity

Potent and selective 11β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1 (11βHSD1) inhibitor (Ki = 2.3 nM) that displays little activity at 11βHSD2 (1.5% inhibition at 10 μM). Inhibits the conversion of prednisone to prednisolone in human hepatocytes in vitro (EC50 = 15 nM) and has antidiabetic activity in vivo. Orally active.
