Chemical Name: 5-[[4-[2-(5-Ethyl-2-pyridinyl)-ethoxy]phenyl]methyl]-2,4-thiazolidinedione hydrochloride
Biological ActivityPioglitazone hydrochloride is a selective PPARγ agonist (EC50 = 0.69 μM). Thiazolidinedione (TZD) derivative and antidiabetic agent; improves insulin sensitivity. Also enhances proliferation and survival of mESCs and acts synergistically with Y-27632 (Cat.No. 1254) to improve survival of dissociated single hPSCs and increase colony formation.
