Product Information:

TUG-770 is a Highly Potent Free Fatty Acid Receptor 1 (FFA1/GPR40) Agonist for Treatment of Type 2 Diabetes. Free fatty acid receptor 1 (FFA1 or GPR40) enhances glucose-stimulated insulin secretion from pancreatic β-cells and currently attracts high interest as a new target for the treatment of type 2 diabetes.

In Vitro:

TUG-770 (Compound 22) displays excellent physicochemical and in vitro ADME properties, with good aqueous solubility, good chemical stability, low lipophilicity, and decreased plasma protein binding (PPB). TUG-770 shows excellent stability toward human liver microsomes (HLM), and good permeability in the Caco-2 cell assay.

TUG-770 exhibits lower potency on the rodent orthologs (mFFA1, pEC50 = 6.83; rFFA1, pEC50 = 6.49).

In the rat INS-1E cell line, TUG-770 significantly increases insulin secretion (10.75% of total content with 10 μM 22 vs 8.74 with vehicle) at high glucose concentration (12.4 mM) and, no effect (4.14% of total content with 10 μM 22 vs 4.02 with vehicle) at low glucose concentration (2.8 mM).


In Vivo

TUG-770 (Compound 22; 20 mg/kg; oral administration; daily; for 28 days) treatment significantly improves glucose tolerance, and has no effect on food intake, body weight, body composition or plasma leptin concentration. TUG-770 also significantly improves the insulin sensitivity index (plasma glucose x plasma insulin) .
