Biological Activity

Description Fenofibric acid (NSC 281318, Trilipix, FNF acid) is a fibrate that acts as a lipid-lowering agent, decreasing low-density lipoprotein cholesterol and triglycerides.
PPARα [1]
In vitro

Fibric acids, active forms of fibrate drugs and activators of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-alpha (PPARα), are also known for an HDL-raising effect. Fibric acids enhance fatty acid catabolism and accordingly reduce plasma lipid level, predominantly triglyceride (TG). Fenofibric acid increases the expression of ABCA1 and apoA-I–mediated HDL production. The effect on ABCA1 expression was through the enhancement of the transcription of the ABCA1 gene being dependent on LXR[1].

In vivo Fenofibric acid attenuates aberrant increases of circulating EPC(Endothelial Progenitor Cells) in OIR mice. Inhibitory effect of Fenofibric acid on EPC mobilization in the OIR model is PPARα-dependent.Fenofibric acid Inhibits hypoxia-induced retinal EPC increase in a PPARα-dependent manner. Fenofibric acid decreases CXCR4-positive EPC in the circulation, downregulates the serum SDF-1 level and suppresses HIF-1a and SDF-1 overexpression in the retina[1].


Cell Research:


- Collapse
  • Cell lines: RAW264 cells; THP-1 cells
  • Concentrations: 0-200 μmol/L
  • Incubation Time: 48 h
  • Method:

    PPAR activators fenofibric acid is dissolved in DMSO and added to the culture medium containing 0.2% BSA. RAW264 cells are washed with PBS and cultured an additional 48 hours in the presence of fenofibric acid in DMEM/F-12(1:1) medium containing 2% TCM and 0.2% BSA. During the last 24 hours of the drug treatment, 300 mol/L of dibutyryl cAMP and apoA-I (10 μg/mL) are added to the medium. THP-1 cells are also treated with the compound and apoA-I in 0.2% BSA-RPMI 1640 medium and 0.1% BSA-MEM. Cholesterol and choline-phospholipid released into the medium by apoA-I are determined enzymatically. Adherent cells are dissolved in 0.1 N NaOH for protein determination by bicinchoninic acid protein assay system.

*When preparing stock solutions, please always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the via label and SDS / 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.
