Biological Activity

Description ZLN005 is a potent and tissue-specific PGC-1α transcriptional activator.
PGC-1α [1]
In vitro

In L6 myotubes, ZLN005 increases expression of the PGC-1α gene and downstream genes by activation of AMP-activated protein kinase, and improves glucose uptake and fatty acid oxidation without obvious cytotoxicity. While ZLN005 does not has the same effects in rat primary hepatocytes, which suggests cell type–specificity. [1]

In vivo ZLN005 (15 mg/kg, p.o.) produces antihyperglycemia and antihyperlipidemia effects and increases insulin sensitivity in db/db mice but not lean mice. [1]

Protocol (from reference)

Animal Research:[1]
  • Animal Models: Male C57BKS db/db and lean littermate C57BKS mice.
  • Dosages: ~15 mg/kg
  • Administration: p.o.

Working concentration: mg/ml;

Method for preparing DMSO master liquid: mg drug pre-dissolved in μL DMSO ( Master liquid concentration mg/mL, Please contact us first if the concentration exceeds the DMSO solubility of the batch of drug. )

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next addμL PEG300, mix and clarify, next addμL Tween 80, mix and clarify, next add μL ddH2O, mix and clarify.

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next add μL Corn oil, mix and clarify.

Note: 1. Please make sure the liquid is clear before adding the next solvent.
2. Be sure to add the solvent(s) in order. You must ensure that the solution obtained, in the previous addition, is a clear solution before proceeding to add the next solvent. Physical methods such
as vortex, ultrasound or hot water bath can be used to aid dissolving.
