<p style=/line-height:25px/>A-769662 is a potent, reversible AMPK activator with EC50 of 0.8 μM, little effect on GPPase/FBPase activity.<br>IC50 value: 8 uM (EC50) [1]<br>Target: AMPK<br>in vitro: A-769662 stimulates partially purified rat liver AMPK with EC50 with 0.8 μM. A-769662 activates AMPK purified from multiple tissues and species in a dose-responsive manner with modest variations in observed EC50s. EC50s determined for A-769662 using partially purified AMPK extracts from rat heart, rat muscle, or human embryonic kidney cells (HEKs) are 2.2 mM, 1.9 mM, or 1.1 mM, respectively. A 4 hours treatment of primary rat hepatocytes with A-769662 dose-dependently increases ACC phosphorylation, which correlated inhibition of fatty acid synthesis with IC50 of 3.2 μM. A-769662 also inhibits fatty acid sythesis in mouse hepatocytes with IC50 with 3.6 μM [1]. A-769662 activates AMPK both allosterically and by inhibiting dephosphorylation of AMPK on Thr-172, similar to the effects of AMP [2]. A-769662 inhibits proteasomal function by an AMPK-independent mechanism. A-769662 affects the in vitro activity of purified 26S proteasomes but not the in vitro activity of purified 20S proteasomes. A-769662 has toxic effects on MEF cells [3].<br>in vivo: Short-term treatment of normal Sprague Dawley rats with A-769662 decreases liver malonyl CoA levels and the respiratory exchange ratio, VCO2/VO2, indicating an increased rate of whole-body fatty acid oxidation. Treatment of ob/ob mice with 30 mg/kg b.i.d. A-769662 decreases hepatic expression of PEPCK, G6Pase, and FAS, lowers plasma glucose by 40%, reduced body weight gain and significantly decreases both plasma and liver triglyceride levels [1].</p>
