|Description||GW9508 is a potent and selective agonist for FFA1 (GPR40) with pEC50 of 7.32, 100-fold selective against GPR120, stimulates insulin secretion in a glucose-sensitive manner.|
|Features||The effects of GW9508 on insulin secretion are reversed by GW1100, while linoleic acid-stimulated insulin secretion is partially attenuated by GW1100.|
GW9508 is shown to be at least 100-fold selective against 220 other GPCRs, 60 kinases, 63 proteases, seven integrins and 20 nuclear receptors including PPARα, δ and γ (pEC50 4.0, 4 and 4.9, respectively). GW9508 produces a concentration-dependent increase in intracellular Ca2+ concentrations via GPR40 receptor activation and the GPR120 receptor. GW9508 is active as an agonist at both GPR40 and GPR120, it is approximately 100-fold selective for GPR40 with respect to GPR120. GW9508 produces a concentration-dependent increase (pEC50=6.14) in glucose-stimulated insulin secretion at high glucose levels (25 mM). GW9508 dose dependently stimulated insulin secretion in a glucose-sensitive manner in MIN6 cells. Furthermore, GW9508 is able to potentiate the KCl-mediated increase in insulin secretion in MIN6 cells.  GW9508 induced hyperpolarization and opening of KATP channels in rat β-cells.  GW9508 inhibits CCL17 and CCL5 expression in a pertussis toxin-sensitive manner. GW9508 further suppresses expression of IL-11, IL-24, and IL-33 induced in HaCaT cells by TNF-α and IFN-γ. GW9508 also inhibits CCL5 and CXCL10 production by normal human epidermal keratinocytes.

* 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.
