GW 4869 New
Chemical Name: 3,3'-(1,4-Phenylene)bis[N-[4-(4,5-dihydro-1H-imidazol-2-yl)phenyl]-2-propenamide] ditrifluoroacetate
Biological ActivitySelective neutral sphingomyelin phosphodiesterase (N-SMase) inhibitor (IC50 = 1 μM). Exhibits selectivity for neutral sphingomyelinase over acid sphingomyelinase (a-SMase) at concentrations up to 150 μM as well as B. cereus PC-PLC, human lyso-PAF PLC, and bovine PP2A at 10 μM. Blocks exosome biogenesis. Inhibits TNF-α-induced sphingomyelin hydrolysis and TNF-α-induced cell death in MCF-7 cells. Reverses hypoxia-induced pulmonary vasoconstriction in rats. Neuroprotective.
