Biological Activity

Description GW0742 is a potent and highly selective PPARβ/δ agonist, with IC50 of 1 nM, with 1000-fold selectivity over hPPARα and hPPARγ.
Features Both GW0742 and L-165041 activate PPARβ, but not PPARγ or PPARα in platelets.
PPARδ [1]
1 nM(EC50)
In vitro

GW0742 shows activity aganist hPPARα, hPPARγ and hPPARδ with EC50 of 1.1 μM, 2 μM and 1 nM, respectively, in cell based transactivation assay. [1] GW0742 (0.2 μM and 1 μM) significant increases in reporter activity of PPARβ/δ in N/TERT-1 keratinocytes. GW0742 (1 μM) results in significant inhibition in the average number of N/TERT-1 keratinocytes. GW0742 (1 μM) results in an increase in the number of cells in the G1 phase and a decrease in the number of cells in the S phase. GW0742 (1 μM) causes a significant increase in the mRNA encoding ADRP, a known PPARβ/δ target gene, in N/TERT-1 keratinocytes as well as mouse primary keratinocytes. GW0742 (1 μM) results in significantly reduced phosphorylation of retinoblastoma (Rb) and a significantly lower level of p42/44 ERK in N/TERT-1 cells. GW0742 (1 μM) leads to an increase in the mRNA encoding a number of known markers of terminal differentiation including TG-I, SPR1A, K10 and involucrin. [2] GW0742 at 100 μM produces a significant reduction in low-KCl-induced neuronal cell death in cerebellar granule neurons. GW0742 at 100 μM induces a pronounced increase in cell death as measured by LDH release after 48 hr of incubation. GW0742 at 100 μM produces a pronounced increase in c-Jun expression at 6 hours in cerebellar granule neuron cultures. GW0742 at 100 μM increases PPARα-mediated transactivation dependent on the presence of 1.5% BSA in MCF-7 cells. [3]

In vivo GW0742 (10 mg/kg) promotes reverse cholesterol transport in C57BL6/J mice. GW0742 (10 mg/kg) increases the fecal excretion of HDLderived cholesterol despite no effect on HDL cholesterol catabolism in C57BL6/J mice. GW0742 decreases NPC1L1 mRNA expression in the small intestine of mice. [4] GW0742 (30 mg/kg), prior to induction of LPS-mediated pulmonary inflammation, results in a significant decrease in leukocyte recruitment into the pulmonary space in Male BALB/c mice. GW0742 (30 mg/kg) significantly decreases protein and mRNA levels of the pro-inflammatory cytokines IL-6, IL-1beta and TNFalpha in Bronchial alveolar lavage fluid of mice. [5]

Protocol (from reference)

Cell Research:[2]
  • Cell lines: N/TERT-1 keratinocytes
  • Concentrations: ~1 μM
  • Incubation Time: 6 days
  • Method: N/TERT-1 keratinocytes are seeded onto 6-well tissue culture dishes at 3×104 cells per well in Ker-SFM. Twenty-four hours later, cell number is measured with a Z1 coulter particle counter to determine plating efficiency (Day 0). For the remaining cells, medium is changed to Ker-SFM/DF-K, and cells are treated in triplicate with 0.1% DMSO, 0.1 μM or 1 μM GW0742. Cell number is determined at daily intervals, and the remaining cells are retreated with fresh media and treatment each day for up to 6 days.
Animal Research:[4]
  • Animal Models: Wild-type C57BL/6 female mice
  • Dosages: 10 mg/kg
  • Administration: Supplemented chow diet
