|Description||Dalcetrapib (JTT-705) is a rhCETP inhibitor with IC50 of 0.2 μM that increases the plasma HDL cholesterol. Phase 3.|
Dalcetrapib modulates CETP activity. Dalcetrapib induces a conformational change in CETP, when added to human plasma. CETP-induced pre-β-HDL formation in human plasma is unchanged by Dalcetrapib ≤3 µM and increased at 10 µM. Dalcetrapib statistically and significantly increases pre-β-HDL formation.  Dalcetrapib achieves 50% inhibition of CETP activity in human plasma at a concentration of 9 μM.  Dalcetrapib inhibits the CETP activity of media in HepG2 in a dose-dependent manner. 
|In vivo||Treatment with Dalcetrapib leads to significant increases in HDL-C levels. In hamsters injected with [3H]cholesterol-labeled autologous macrophages Dalcetrapib significantly increases fecal elimination of both [3H]neutral sterols and [3H]bile acids. Dalcetrapib increases plasma HDL-[3H]cholesterol.  Dalcetrapib has 95% inhibition of CETP activity in male Japanese white rabbits at an oral dose of 30 mg/kg. Dalcetrapib increases the plasma HDL cholesterol level by 27% and 54%, respectively, when given at oral doses of 30 mg/kg or 100 mg/kg once a day for 3 days to male Japanese white rabbits.  Treatment with Dalcetrapib markedly increases serum levels of HDL-C. The ratio of HDL2-C to HDL3-C is significantly higher in Dalcetrapib–treated rabbits than in control rabbits at 5 and 7 months, indicating that the inhibition of CETP activity by Dalcetrapib changes the distribution of HDL subfractions and preferentially increases HDL2-C levels. Dalcetrapib treatment increases serum paraoxonase activity and HDL-associated platelet-activating factor acetylhydrolase activity, but decreases the plasma lysophosphatidylcholine concentration. |
Inhibition of rhCETP and C13S CETP-mediated transfer of CE from HDL to LDL:The inhibitory potency (IC50) of Dalcetrapib to decrease CE transfer from HDL to LDL by rhCETP and C13S CETP is measured using a scintillation proximity assay kit. Briefly, [3H]CE-labeled HDL donor particles are incubated in the presence of purified CETP proteins (final concentration 0.5 µg/mL) and biotinylated LDL acceptor particles for 3 hours at 37 °C. Subsequently, streptavidin-coupled polyvinyltoluene beads containing liquid scintillation cocktail binding selectively to biotinylated LDL are added, and the amount of [3H]CE molecules transferred to LDL is measured by β counting.

|In vivo||Add solvents to the product individually and in order(Data is from Selleck tests instead of citations):
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.
