A series of α-ethylphenylpropanoic acid derivatives was prepared as candidate peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR) α-selective agonists, based on our PPARα/δ dual agonist 3 as a lead compound. Structure-activity relationship studies clearly indicated that the steric bulkiness and position of the distal hydrophobic tail part are critical for(More)
Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPARγ) is a ligand-mediated transcription factor with roles in glucose, lipid, and lipoprotein homeostasis, and PPARγ ligands are expected have therapeutic potential in these as well as other areas. We report here the design, synthesis, crystallographic analysis, and computational studies of(More)
In the continuing study directed toward the development of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (hPPARγ) agonist, we attempted to improve the water solubility of our previously developed hPPARγ-selective agonist 3, which is insufficiently soluble for practical use, by employing two strategies: introducing substituents to reduce its molecular(More)
We previously demonstrated that the α-benzylphenylpropanoic acid-type PPARγ-selective agonist 6 exhibited a reversed stereochemistry-activity relationship, that is, the (R)-enantiomer is a more potent PPARγ agonist than the (S)-enantiomer, compared with structurally similar α-ethylphenylpropanoic acid-type PPAR agonists. Here, we designed, synthesized and(More)
