Inhibition of Diacylglycerol O-acyltransferase 1 (DGAT1) has been a mechanism of interest for metabolic disorders. DGAT1 inhibition has been shown to be a key regulator in an array of metabolic pathways; however, based on the DGAT1 KO mouse phenotype the anticipation is that pharmacological inhibition of DGAT1 could potentially lead to skin related adverse(More)
Studies have demonstrated that blockade of diacylglycerol acyltransferase 1 (DGAT1) leads to prolonged release of glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) after meal challenge. The current study was undertaken to investigate the mechanism of action underlying the elevated levels of GLP-1 release following pharmacological inhibition of DGAT1. We utilized a potent,(More)
We report SAR studies on a novel non-peptidic somatostatin receptor 3 (SSTR3) agonist lead series derived from (4-phenyl-1H-imidazol-2-yl)methanamine. This effort led to the discovery of a highly potent low molecular weight SSTR3 agonist 5c (EC50=5.2 nM, MW=359). The results from molecular overlays of 5c onto the L-129 structure indicate good alignment, and(More)
Monogenic diabetes is a genetic disease often caused by mutations in genes involved in beta-cell function. Correct sub-categorization of the disease is a prerequisite for appropriate treatment and genetic counseling. Target-region capture sequencing is a combination of genomic region enrichment and next generation sequencing which might be used as an(More)
