Chemical Name: 5-[[4-[2-(Methyl-2-pyridinylamino)ethoxy]phenyl]methyl]-2,4-thiazolidinedione
Biological ActivityPotent and selective PPARγ agonist (EC50 = 60 nM); exhibits no activity at PPARα and PPARβ. Promotes differentiation of pluripotent C3H10T1/2 stem cells into adipocytes. Also promotes differentiation of urothelial organoids in combination with erlotinib. Exhibits antihyperglycemic activity in diabetic ob/ob mouse model. Antidiabetic agent.

PPAR gamma Assay was performed using manual dispensing and following the protocol described in this Technical Manual, using the Rosiglitazone. PPAR gamma reporter cells treated with 2,500 nM Rosiglitazone yielded an average RLU value with CV=7%, S/B = 162 and a corresponding Z’= 0.78.
