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.
|In vitro||DMSO||72 mg/mL (199.78 mM)|
|In vivo||Add solvents to the product individually and in order(Data is from Selleck tests instead of citations):
5% DMSO+40% PEG 300+5% Tween 80+50% ddH2O
For best results, use promptly after mixing.
* 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 (mg) = Concentration (mM) × Volume (mL) × 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.
