Biological Activity

GW 0742 is a potent and highly selective PPARδ agonist. EC50 values are 0.001, 1.1 and 2 μM for transactivation of human PPARδ, -α, and -γ receptors respectively. Neuroprotective in rat cerebellar granule neuronal cultures after brief (12-hour) exposure but exhibits inherent toxicity after prolonged (48-hour) incubation. Increases rate of fatty acid oxidation and protects against ischemia/reperfusion injury in neonatal and adult cardiomyocytes.

Technical Data

Soluble to 50 mM in ethanol and to 100 mM in DMSO
Desiccate at +4°C
