CAY10410 is an analog of prostaglandin D2/prostaglandin J2 (PGD2/PGJ2) with structural modifications intended to give it PPARγ ligand activity and resistance to metabolism. 15-deoxy-Δ12,14-PGJ2 has been shown to be a potent ligand for PPARγ.1 Metabolism of the cyclopentenone prostaglandins PGA2, PGJ2, and Δ12-PGJ2 occurs via glutathione addition across the α,β unsaturated enone.2 CAY10410 was designed as an analog of the PPARγ-binding prostaglandins which could not undergo this conjugation reaction. In human neuroblastoma SH-SY5Y cells, CAY10410 was not cytotoxic at up to 25 µM. It also failed to covalently modify thioredoxin or induce oxidative stress at 50 µM.3

Cayman Chemical Company regularly evaluates our shipping methods to ensure product stability is maintained and our corporate environmental impact is minimized. Products selected for review are evaluated and shipping methods are certified by our Scientists. While occasionally our method of shipping a product may change, rest assured the shipping conditions on all Cayman Chemical products have been reviewed and validated.
Upon receipt, it is important to check the storage requirements of your products and place them at the appropriate temperature. Products shipped without ice may require frozen storage for long term stability.
Cayman Chemical was formed over thirty years ago by demonstrating the value of naturally growing gorgonian corals as a renewable, economically viable source of prostaglandins. Today we operate our business knowing that we owe our start to the renewable resources our environment had provided. As Cayman Chemical continues to grow we consistently evaluate our business processes to ensure we are operating at the highest environmental standards.
