Chemical Name: 1-[(4-Chlorophenyl)methyl]-3-[(1,1-dimethylethyl)thio]-α,α-dimethyl-5-(1-methylethyl)-1H-Indole-2-propanoic acid
Biological ActivityMK 886 is a potent inhibitor of 5-lipoxygenase-activating protein (FLAP) (IC50 = 30 nM for inhibition of [125I]-L-691,678 photoaffinity labelling). Inhibits leukotriene biosynthesis (IC50 = 3 nM in human polymorphonuclear leukocytes). Also moderately potent PPARα antagonist (IC50 = 0.5-1 μM). Orally active in vivo.
