Chemical Name: (S)-2-Ethoxy-3-[4-[2-(4-methanesulfonyloxyphenyl)ethoxy]phenyl]propanoic acid
Biological ActivityTesaglitazar is a dual-specificity PPARα/γ agonist (IC50 values are 0.35 and 3.8 μM for PPARγ and PPARα respectively). Prevents atherosclerosis progression in E3L.CETP transgenic mice. Also reduces insulin resistance in obese Zucker rats. Orally active.

HL-1 cardiomyocytes were incubated with Tesaglitazar (10 µM) for 30 min prior to addition of 15 µM 15d-PGJ2 for 30 min. Preincubation of cells with Tesaglitazar completely abolished activation of p42/44 MAPK indicating involvement of PPAR gamma in cellular signalling in response to 15d-PGJ2.
