Pioglitazone HCl | PPAR gamma agonist

Pioglitazone (112529-15-4) is a clinically useful antidiabetic drug.1 It is a selective agonist of the human peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ 1 (PPARγ1; EC50 = 490 nM2, 550 nM3) with weak agonist activity at PPARα and no activity at PPARδ.2  Inhibits mitochondrial pyruvate metabolism and glucose production in hepatocytes.4 Suppresses production of inflammatory cytokines and shows antidepressant-like activity in mouse models.5
