HTS01037 | FABP inhibitor

HTS01037 (682741-29-3) inhibits fatty acid binding proteins.  Inhibits lipolysis in 3T3-L1 adipocytes and reduces LPS-stimulated inflammation in cultured macrophages.  Acts as an antagonist of the protein-protein interaction between AFABP/aP2 and hormone sensitive lipase but does not activate PPARg in macrophages1. Inhibits FABP-dependent and fatty acid-stimulated leukotriene C4 biosynthesis2.  Reduces intracellular free fatty acid levels, lowering macrophage inflammation and ER stress3. Reduces LPS-stimulated IL-1b secretion in a mouse model4. Inhibits VLDL-induced foam cell formation5.
