Tesaglitazar completely abolishes 15d-PGJ2 induced p42/44 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 Tesaglitazar (10 µM) for 30 min prior to addition of 15 µM 15d-PGJ2 for 30 min. Preincubation of cells with Tesaglitazar completely abolished activation of p42/44 MAPK indicating involvement of PPAR gamma in cellular signalling in response to 15d-PGJ2.
