Potent, high affinity liver X receptor (LXR) agonist (EC50 ~ 50 nM, Kd values are 7 and 22 nM for LXR-α and LXR-β respectively). Upregulates expression of the ABCA1 gene associated with cholesterol efflux regulation and HDL metabolism. Decreases amyloid-β production in primary neurons in vitro. Displays an EC50 of ~ 5 μM for activation of bile acid farnesoid X receptors (FXRs); 10-fold more potent than natural FXR ligand chenodeoxycholic acid. Also exhibits inverse agonist activity at constitutive androstane receptors (CAR).
