Chemical Name: N-[3-Chloro-4-[[[2-(methylamino)-6-(2-pyridinyl)-4-pyrimidinyl]amino]methyl]phenyl]methanesulfonamide
Biological ActivityPotent and selective GPR39 agonist (EC50 values are 0.4 and 0.8 nM for rat and human receptors respectively). Selective over a panel of kinases (IC50s > 10 μM) and displays minimal binding affinity for ghrelin and neurotensin-1 receptors (IC50s > 30 μM). Increases GLP-1 levels in vitro and in vivo. Reduces TNF-α-induced oxidative stress, mitochondrial dysfunction, cytokine expression and secretion of MMPs in fibroblast-like synoviocytes (FLS). Orally bioavailable.
