|Description||Anacetrapib (MK0859) is a potent, selective, reversible rhCETP and mutant CETP(C13S) inhibitor with IC50 of 7.9 nM and 11.8 nM, increases HDL-C and decreases LDL-C, does not increase aldosterone or blood pressure. Phase 3.|
Anacetrapib is not only able to increase HDL-cholesterol, but also further decreases LDL-cholesterol when taken in combination with a statin. Anacetrapib dose-dependently and significantly decreases the transfer of CE from HDL3 to HDL2. Anacetrapib doesn't affect the amount of [14C]-dalcetrapibthiol bound to rhCETP. Anacetrapib decreases pre-β-HDL formation by more than 46%.  Anacetrapib potently blocks CE and TG transfer in 95% human serum.
|In vivo||In a dyslipidemic hamster model, 60 mg/kg/day Anacetrapib for 2 weeks results in a 94% reduction in CETP activity and 47% increase in HDL-cholesterol compared with control animals; non-HDL-cholesterol concentrations are not affected. In addition, Anacetrapib promotes reverse cholesterol transport from macrophages, and leads to a 30% increase in fecal cholesterol content. HDL from Anacetrapib-treated hamsters reveals an increase in SR-B1- and ABCG1-mediated efflux compared with controls.  After oral administration of [14C]Anacetrapib at 10 mg/kg, ∼80 and 90% of the radioactive dose is recovered over 48 hous postdose from rats and monkeys, respectively. The majority of the administered radioactive dose is excreted unchanged in feces in both species. |

* 1 mg/ml means slightly soluble or insoluble.
* 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.
