Biological Activity

Description Saxagliptin is a selective and reversible DPP4 inhibitor with IC50 of 26 nM.
DPP-4 [1]
26 nM
In vitro

Saxagliptin has an inhibition constant Ki of 1.3 nM for DPP4 inhibition, which is 10-fold more potent than either vildagliptin or sitagliptin (another two DPP4 inhibitors) with Ki of 13 and 18 nM. In addition, Saxagliptin demonstrates greater specificity for DPP4 than for either the DPP8 or DPP9 enzymes (400- and 75- fold, respectively). The active metablite of saxagliptin is two-fold less potent than the parent. Both Saxagliptin and its metabolite are highly selective (>4000-fold) for the prevention of DPP4 compared with a range of other proteases (selectivity of sitagliptin and vildagliptin for DPP4 is >2600 and <250-fold, respectively, compared with DPP8 and DPP9). [2] Saxagliptin reduces the degradation of the incretin hormone glucagon-like peptide-1, thereby enhancing its actions, and is associated with improved β-cell function and suppression of glucagon secretion.

In vivo Maximal responses of Saxagliptin in glucose excursion in Zuckerfa/fa rats are associated with plasma DPP4 inhibition of approximately 60% vs. control, and no additional antihyperglycemic effects are seen at higher percent inhibition. Saxagliptin is highly effective at eliciting marked dose-dependent enhancements in glucose clearance in the dose range 0.13-1.3 mg/kg in ob/ob mice relative to controls. Saxagliptin dose-dependently elevate plasma insulin significantly at 15 min post-oGTT, with concomitant improvement in the glucose clearance curves at 60 min post-oGTT. [4]

*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).

Dilution Calculator

Dilution Calculator

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 )

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.
