|Description||AZ876 is a novel high-affinity Liver X Receptor (LXR) agonist with Ki values of 0.007 μM and 0.011 μM for human LXRα and LXRβ respectively.|
In binding assays, AZ876 is 25-fold and 2.5-fold more potent than GW3965 on human (h)LXRα and hLXRβ respectively. In reporter transactivation assays, AZ876 is 196-fold and fivefold more potent than GW3965 on hLXRα and hLXRβ respectively. AZ876 is also more potent than GW3965 on mouse (m)LXRα (248-fold) and mLXRβ (10.5-fold). AZ876 is four- to sevenfold more potent than GW3965 on the expression of ABCA1 mRNA in hamster and human blood PMN cells. AZ876 is highly selective with respect to other nuclear hormone receptors, including retinoid X receptor, farnesoid X receptor, thyroid hormone receptor (TR)α or TRβ, when tested in agonist mode in fluorescence resonance energy transfer assays.
AZ876 is a dual partial LXR agonist that has been shown to reduce atherosclerosis in mice without affecting liver or plasma triglyceride levels when administered in low dose. Chronic administration of the LXR agonist AZ876 attenuates pathological cardiac hypertrophy in a murine model of chronic pressure overload without altering systemic blood pressure, implicating heart-specific effects. AZ876 treatment diminishes myocardial fibrosis and suppresses induction of profibrotic gene expression.

* 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.
