Orally active α-glucosidase inhibitor (IC50 values are 3.9 and 6.4 nM at sucrase and maltase respectively). Increases glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) secretion and decreases food consumption in ob/ob mice, and reduces plasma concentrations of glucose, triglycerides and insulin in Wistar fatty rats. Exhibits antidiabetic and antiobesity activity in vivo.

Preparing Stock Solutions
The following data is based on the product molecular weight 267.28. Batch specific molecular weights may vary from batch to batch due to solvent of hydration, which will affect the solvent volumes required to prepare stock solutions.
|Concentration / Solvent Volume / Mass||1 mg||5 mg||10 mg|
|1 mM||3.74 mL||18.71 mL||37.41 mL|
|5 mM||0.75 mL||3.74 mL||7.48 mL|
|10 mM||0.37 mL||1.87 mL||3.74 mL|
|50 mM||0.07 mL||0.37 mL||0.75 mL|
