Biological Activity

Description Vildagliptin (LAF-237) inhibits DPP−4 with IC50 of 2.3 nM.
DPP-4 [1]
(Cell-free assay)
2.3 nM
In vitro

Vildagliptin is the most stable DPP-IV inhibitor, binding in the S1- and S2-catalytic sites of DPP-IV, possessing a P-1 site transition-state mimetic. [1]

In vivo Vildagliptin(orally dosed with 10 μmol/kg) is a potent, orally active inhibitor of plasma DPP-IV activity that provides increased levels of GLP-1 in an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) with Obese male Zucker rats. Vildagliptin orally dosed with 10 μmol/kg both significantly decreases glucose excursions and stimulates insulin secretion in Obese male Zucker rats. Maximum inhibition of plasma DPP-IV activity (95%) is observed approximately 2 hours postdose of Vildagliptin (1 μmol/kg, po) while >50% inhibition of DPP-IV is observed within 30 min postdose and persisted for >10 hours in normal Cynomolgus monkeys. [1] Vildagliptin(60 mg/kg) increases pancreatic beta cell mass through enhanced beta cell replication and reduced apoptosis, and the increased beta cell mass is sustained for 12 days after vildagliptin washout. [2] Vildagliptin administrated at doses of 10 mg/kg for 32 weeks protects nerve fiber loss in streptozotocin (STZ)-induced diabetic adult male Sprague Dawley rats. [3]

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.
