Cells were treated with CP, DOXO, SRT1720 (100 nM), EX527 (100 nM), A769662 (10 μM) and Compound C (1 μM) under normoxic or hypoxic conditions for 48 hours, and then their viabilities were measured by MTT.

Eight- to 10-week-old Ldlr-/- mice fed a standard laboratory chow were fasted overnight, fed at 07:00 h for 2 h, and refasted at 09:00 h. Intraperitoneal injection of vehicle, GW1516 (3 mg/kg), or A-769662 (30 mg/kg) (n = 6/group) occurred at the beginning of the refasting period at 09:00 h. Immunoblots of AMPK and ACC in freeze-clamped liver lysates 90 min postinjection. Representative immunoblots with quantitations are shown. Asterisk (*) indicates significant difference between vehicle and treatment; Student's paired t-test (P < 0.05).

Concentration-dependent effect of synthetic AMPK stimulator, A-769662, applied for 10 min on phosphorylated α subunit of AMPK. AMPK inhibitor (compound C, CC) was added to some samples at 10 uM. **p < 0.01, ***p < 0.001 vs. sample without A-769662 by ANOVA and Tukey post hoc test.

Cultured PANC-1 pancreatic cancer cells were treated with vehicle (DMSO, 1%), 10 uM of belinostat (BS, for 2 h, 4 h and 6 h) or A-769662 (10 uM, 2 h), phospho- and total AMPK and ACC were detected by western blot, tubulin (loading control) was also tested. AMPK and ACC phosphorylation was quantified as described.

A-769662 stimulates partially purified rat liver AMPK with EC50 with 0.8 μM. A-769662 activates AMPK purified from multiple tissues and species in a dose-responsive manner with modest variations in observed EC50s. EC50s determined for A-769662 using partially purified AMPK extracts from rat heart, rat muscle, or human embryonic kidney cells (HEKs) are 2.2 mM, 1.9 mM, or 1.1 mM, respectively. A 4 hours treatment of primary rat hepatocytes with A-769662 dose-dependently increases ACC phosphorylation, which correlated inhibition of fatty acid synthesis with IC50 of 3.2 μM. A-769662 also inhibits fatty acid sythesis in mouse hepatocytes with IC50 with 3.6 μM  A-769662 activates AMPK both allosterically and by inhibiting dephosphorylation of AMPK on Thr-172, similar to the effects of AMP.  A-769662 inhibits proteasomal function by an AMPK-independent mechanism. A-769662 affects the in vitro activity of purified 26S proteasomes but not the in vitro activity of purified 20S proteasomes. A-769662 has toxic effects on MEF cells.  A recent research shows A-769662 inhibited cell proliferation and DNA synthesis. 
|In vivo||Short-term treatment of normal Sprague Dawley rats with A-769662 decreases liver malonyl CoA levels and the respiratory exchange ratio, VCO2/VO2, indicating an increased rate of whole-body fatty acid oxidation. Treatment of ob/ob mice with 30 mg/kg b.i.d. A-769662 decreases hepatic expression of PEPCK, G6Pase, and FAS, lowers plasma glucose by 40%, reduced body weight gain and significantly decreases both plasma and liver triglyceride levels. |
96-well AMPK assay:AMPK activity is measured by monitoring phosphorylation of the SAMS peptide substrate (20 mM in standard assays and 100 mM in additivity assays) following a previously described protocol (Anderson et al., 2004). To determine whether A-769662-induced AMPK activation occurs in a reversible manner, AMP or A-769662 are preincubated with rat liver AMPK for 10 minutes at 20 times standard assay concentrations prior to dilution and measurement of AMPK activity.

* Please note that Selleck tests the solubility of all compounds in-house, and the actual solubility may differ slightly from published values. This is normal and is due to slight batch-to-batch variations.
Calculate the mass, volume or concentration required for a solution. The Selleck molarity calculator is based on the following equation:
Mass (g) = Concentration (mol/L) × Volume (L) × Molecular Weight (g/mol)
*When preparing stock solutions, please always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the via label and MSDS / COA (available on product pages).
Calculate the dilution required to prepare a stock solution. The Selleck dilution calculator is based on the following equation:
Concentration (start) x Volume (start) = Concentration (final) x Volume (final)
This equation is commonly abbreviated as: C1V1 = C2V2 ( Input Output )
* When preparing stock solutions always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the vial label and MSDS / COA (available online).

Definitions of molecular mass, molecular weight, molar mass and molar weight:
Molecular mass (molecular weight) is the mass of one molecule of a substance and is expressed in the unified atomic mass units (u). (1 u is equal to 1/12 the mass of one atom of carbon-12)
Molar mass (molar weight) is the mass of one mole of a substance and is expressed in g/mol.
