How to use

In Vitro:

DG172 dihydrochloride is a selective PPARβ/δ antagonist, with an IC50 of 27 nM. DG172 enhances transcriptional corepressor recruitment, and down-regulates transcription of the PPARβ/δ target gene Angptl4 in mouse myoblasts (IC50, 9.5 nM). DG172 (1 µM) promotes the differentiation of dendritic cells (DCs) from GM-CSF-induced mouse bone marrow cells (BMCs) and reduces Ly6b+/Gr1+ granulocytic cells. DG172 has effects on the transcriptome of GM-CSF differentiated BMCs from WT and Ppard null mice, and acts at a specific stage of GM-CSF-induced differentiation. DG172 (0.1, 1.0 µM) dose-dependently promotes proliferation of TM4 cells. DG172 reduces expression of claudin-11 in TM4 cells.
