Product Information

GSK-3787 is a selective and irreversible peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor delta (PPARdelta) antagonist with good pharmacokinetic properties. GSK3787 can antagonize PPARbeta/delta in vivo, thus providing a new strategy to delineate the functional role of a receptor with great potential as a therapeutic target for the treatment and prevention of disease.

In Vitro

GSK3787 is identified as a potent and selective hPPARδ ligand (pIC50=6.6) with no measurable affinity for hPPARα or hPPARγ (pIC50 < 5) in our standard in vitro ligand displacement assay. GSK3787 is inactive against hPPARα and hPPARγ in similar functional antagonist assays. GSK3787 fails to activate the receptor in a standard hPPARδ-GAL4 chimera cell-based reporter assay. GSK3787 is a selective PPARδ antagonist with equipotent species activity against the human and mouse receptor.


In Vivo

GSK3787 has pharmacokinetic properties suitable for use as an in vivo PPARδ antagonist tool compound in mice. GSK3787 is administered intravenously (0.5 mg/kg) and orally (10 mg/kg) to male C57BL/6 mice. Mean clearance (CL) and volume of distribution at steady state (Vss) following iv administration are 39±11 (mL/min)/kg and 1.7±0.4 L/kg, respectively. Following oral administration, good exposure (Cmax=881±166 ng/mL, AUCinf=3343±332 h•ng/mL), half-life (2.7±1.1 h), and bioavailability (F=77±17%) are observed[1]. Oral administration of GSK3787 (10 mg/kg) leads to a serum Cmax of 2.2±0.4 μM in C57BL/6 male mice. Oral administration of GW0742 causes an increase in expression of Angptl4 and Adrp mRNA (known PPARβ/δ target genes) in wild-type mouse colon epithelium, and this effect is not found in Pparβ/δ-null mouse colon epithelium. Coadministration of GSK3787 with GW0742 effectively prevents the ligand-induced expression of both Angptl4 and Adrp mRNA in wild-type mouse colon epithelium, and this effect is not found in Pparβ/δ-null mouse colon epithelium. Oral administration of GSK3787 causes a modest increase in promoter occupancy of PPARβ/δ in the PPRE region of both the Angptl4 and Adrp genes, but coadministration of GSK3787 with GW0742 results in markedly less accumulation of PPARβ/δ in the PPRE region of both the Angptl4 and Adrp genes in wild-type mouse colon epithelium.
