Aryl-tetrahydropyridine derivatives were prepared and their PPARalpha/gamma dual agonistic activities were evaluated. Among them, compound (S)-5b was identified as a potent PPARalpha/gamma dual agonist with an EC(50) of 1.73 and 0.64 microM in hPPARalpha and gamma, respectively. In diabetic (db/db) mice, compound (S)-5b showed good glucose lowering efficacy(More)
Novel benzamide derivatives were synthesized and tested at in vitro assay by measuring fold increase of glucokinase activity at 5.0 mM glucose concentration. Among the prepared compounds, YH-GKA was found to be an active glucokinase activator with EC(50) of 70 nM. YH-GKA showed similar glucose AUC reduction of 29.6% (50 mg/kg) in an OGTT study with C57BL/J6(More)
Novel heteroaryl-containing benzamide derivatives were synthesized and screened using an in vitro assay measuring increases in glucose uptake and glucokinase activity stimulated by 10mM glucose in rat hepatocytes. From a library of synthesized compounds, 3-(4-methanesulfonylphenoxy)-N-[1-(2-methoxy-ethoxymethyl)-1H-pyrazol-3-yl]-5-(3-methyl(More)
