Genz-123346 is a potent and selective glucosylceramide synthase inhibitor with potential anticancer activity. Exposure of cells to Genz-123346 and to other GCS inhibitors at non-toxic concentrations can enhance the killing of tumor cells by cytotoxic anti-cancer agents. Genz-123346 and a few other GCS inhibitors are substrates for multi-drug resistance efflux pumps such as P-gp (ABCB1, gP-170). In cell lines selected to over-express P-gp or which endogenously express P-gp, chemosensitization by Genz-123346 was primarily due to the effects on P-gp function.

How to use
In Zucker diabetic fatty rats, treatment with Genz-123346 significantly lowers blood glucose levels and consequently partially prevents the normal deterioration of pancreatic β-cell function over time and preserves the ability of the islets to secrete insulin. In the high-fat-fed diet-induced obese mice, Genz-123346 essentially normalizes A1C levels to that of the lean animals. The improvement in A1C levels is quite persistent, extending >4 months in the diet-induced obese mice.
