Product Information:

GW-3965 is a liver X receptor agonist. GW3965 represses the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines by murine mast cells. GW3965 improves recovery from mild repetitive traumatic brain injury in mice partly through apolipoprotein E. GW3965 reduces tissue factor production and inflammatory responses in human islets in vitro. GW3965 dose-dependently regulates lps-mediated liver injury and modulates posttranscriptional TNF-alpha production and p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase activation in liver macrophages.

In Vitro:

GW3965 hydrochloride promotes GBM cell death in vitro with enhanced efficacy in EGFRvIII-expressing tumor cells. GW3965 hydrochloride up-regulates expression of the cholesterol transporter gene ABCA1 and the E3 ubiquitin ligase IDOL and reduces LDLR levels. LXR ligands inhibits platelet aggregation and calcium mobilization stimulated by collagen or CRP. GW3965 hydrochloride (1 or 5 μM) displays a minor inhibitory effect on fibrinogen binding and P-selectin exposure, when platelets are stimulated with 1 μg/mL CRP. But using higher concentrations of GW3965 hydrochloride (10 μM) or T0901317 (40 μM), the levels of fibrinogen and P-selectin on the platelet surface are reduced.


In Vivo:

GW3965 hydrochloride induces an increase of neuroactive steroids in the spinal cord, the cerebellum and the cerebral cortex of STZ-rats, but not in the CNS of non-pathological animals. GW3965 hydrochloride treatment induces an increase of dihydroprogesterone in the spinal cord of diabetic animals in association with an increase of myelin basic protein expression. GW3965 hydrochloride (40 mg/kg, p.o.) strongly induces ABCA1 expression and reduces LDLR expression, and this is accompanied by 59% inhibition of tumor growth, and a 25-fold increase in GBM cell apoptosis in vivo. GW3965 hydrochloride (2 mg/kg, i.v.) increases bleeding time and modulated platelet thrombus formation in vivo.
