BioAssay: AID 640636

Inhibition of human delta-5 desaturase activity in human HepG2 cells using [1-14C]-stearic acid tracer

Inhibition of stearoyl-CoA desaturase (SCD) activity represents a potential novel mechanism for the treatment of metabolic disorders including obesity and type II diabetes. To circumvent skin and eye adverse events observed in rodents with systemically-distributed SCD inhibitors, our research efforts have been focused on the search for new and structurally diverse liver-targeted SCD inhibitors. more ..

Title: Discovery of potent and liver-targeted stearoyl-CoA desaturase (SCD) inhibitors in a bispyrrolidine series.

Abstract: Inhibition of stearoyl-CoA desaturase (SCD) activity represents a potential novel mechanism for the treatment of metabolic disorders including obesity and type II diabetes. To circumvent skin and eye adverse events observed in rodents with systemically-distributed SCD inhibitors, our research efforts have been focused on the search for new and structurally diverse liver-targeted SCD inhibitors. This work has led to the discovery of novel, potent and structurally diverse liver-targeted bispyrrolidine SCD inhibitors. These compounds possess suitable cellular activity and pharmacokinetic properties to inhibit liver SCD activity in a mouse pharmacodynamic model.
