Biological Activity

Description LY2608204 activates glucokinase (GK) with EC50 of 42 nM. Phase 2.
glucokinase [1]
42 nM(EC50)
In vitro

LY2608204 activates glucokinase (GK) with EC50 of 42 nM at 10 mM glucose with a concentration dependent manner at lower glucose concentrations. LY2608204 also stimulates glucose metabolism in rat insulinoma INS1-E cells with EC50 of 579 nM. [1]

In vivo LY2608204 decreases plasma glucose in a dose-dependent manner at both fasted and postprandial glucose levels. A maximal lowering of glucose AUC versus the untreated control group is observed with the high dose (30 mg/kg) and represents a 42% decrease. Interpolation of the data show that a 20% glucose AUC decrease occurs at an average LY2608204 concentration of 99 ng/mL (179 nM) in plasma, corresponding to a 6.9 mg/kg LY2608204 dose. The in vivo blood brain barrier permeability of LY2608204 results in a mean brain/plasma ratio of 0.17 five minutes post-dose with a mean total brain level of 0.539 nmol/g. [1]

Protocol (from reference)

Animal Research:[1]
  • Animal Models: Male Wistar rats at a weight of 225-250 g
  • Dosages: 1, 3, 6, 10, 20 and 30 mg/kg
  • Administration: Orally, rats are given a 2 g/kg oral glucose bolus 2 hours after LY2608204 administration.

Method for preparing DMSO master liquid: mg drug pre-dissolved in μL DMSO ( Master liquid concentration mg/mL, Please contact us first if the concentration exceeds the DMSO solubility of the batch of drug. )

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next addμL PEG300, mix and clarify, next addμL Tween 80, mix and clarify, next add μL ddH2O, mix and clarify.

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next add μL Corn oil, mix and clarify.

Note: 1. Please make sure the liquid is clear before adding the next solvent.
2. Be sure to add the solvent(s) in order. You must ensure that the solution obtained, in the previous addition, is a clear solution before proceeding to add the next solvent. Physical methods such
as vortex, ultrasound or hot water bath can be used to aid dissolving.
