Vildagliptin | DPPIV inhibitor

Vildagliptin (274901-16-5) is a potent inhibitor of dipeptidyl peptidase IV (DPP IV), an enzyme that cleaves glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1).1 Delaying the degradation of GLP-1  extends the action of insulin and suppressing the release of glucagon which results in reduction in elevated blood glucose levels (hyperglycemia).2 Clinically useful antidiabetic agent. Ameliorates cognitive deficits in streptozotocin-induced Alzheimers disease model.3 Displays protective effects on β-cells by inhibition of ER stress in a mouse model.4
