Pioglitazone HCl (AD-4833, U-72107E) is an inhibitor of cytochrome P450 (CYP)2C8 and CYP3A4 enzymes. Pioglitazone HCl inhibits CYP2C8, CYP3A4 and CYP2C9 with Ki of 1.7 μM, 11.8 μM and 32.1 μM, respectively. Pioglitazone HCl is also a selective peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-gamma (PPARγ) agonist with EC50 of 0.93 μM and 0.99 μM for human PPARγ and mouse PPARγ, respectively. Pioglitazone HCl inhibits mitochondrial iron uptake, lipid peroxidation, and subsequent ferroptosis.

Primary hepatocytes were treated with or without 20μM Wy14643/Pioglitazone/Rosiglitazone for 24h followed by stimulation with or without 1μg/ml recombinant human FGF21 for 15min. FGF21 signaling was analyzed by phosphorylation of ERK1/2 and FRS2 examination.

Accumulated 7-day BrdU labeling in representative sections of pancreatic islets from mice fed (A) normal chow, (B) HFD, (C) HFD+clodronate, and (D) HFD+pioglitazone. β-Cells were immunostained with anti-insulin Ab (green) and for replication with anti-BrdU Ab (red). Nuclei were stained in blue. Scale bar, 100 μm. The percentage of BrdU-positive β-cells was calculated. Values are means±SE with 5 pancreas samples in each experimental group analyzed and are shown in E. *P<0.05 where significant difference was detected between the HFD mice and other treatment groups. No significant difference was detected between the results of other groups.

Pioglitazone inhibits LPS-induced iNOS expression and NO generation, and inhibition of iNOS is sufficient to protect dopaminergic neurons against LPS insult. Pioglitazone protects dopaminergic neurons against LPS insult at least via inhibiting iNOS expression and NO generation, which is potentially mediated via inhibition of p38 MAPK activity. Pioglitazone inhibits LPS-induced phosphorylation of p38 MAPK. 
Pioglitazone administered orally (0.3-3 mg/kg/d for 7 days) dose dependently reduces hyperglycemia, hyperlipidemia, and hyperinsulinemia in male fatty rats. Pioglitazone improves glucose tolerance and augmentes the glycemic response to exogenous insulin and clearance of plasma triglyceride in rats.  Pioglitazone-treated transgenic mice reveals improved muscle strength and body weight, exhibits a delayed disease onset, and survives significantly longer than nontreated SOD1-G93A mice.  Pioglitazone markedly decreases hyperglycemia, hyperlipidemia, hyperinsulinemia, and glucoseintolerance characterized as insulin resistant states in these rats and mice. Pioglitazone potentiates insulin-mediated glucose metabolism in the diaphragm and adipose tissues of yellow KK mice and enhanced the glycemic response to exogenous insulin in Zucker fatty rats.  Pioglitazone results in a reduction in the number of activated microglia and reactive astrocytes in the hippocampus and cortex of APPV717I transgenic mice. Pioglitazone decreases beta-secretase-1 (BACE1) mRNA and protein levels in APPV717I transgenic mice.

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.
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.
