Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR) γ is a nuclear receptor that, when activated, regulates fatty acid storage and glucose metabolism.1 The best known class of PPARγ ligands are the thiazolidinediones, including troglitazone (Item No. 71750) and rosiglitazone (Item No. 71740).2 GW 1929 is a non-thiazolidinedione activator of PPARγ that binds with a Ki value of 1.4 nM, with greater than 1,000-fold selectivity over other PPAR subtypes.3 It has anti-hyperglycemic and anti-hyperlipidemic activity when given orally in mouse and rat models of type 2 diabetes.3,4 Both in vitro and in vivo effects of GW 1929 on PPARγ greatly exceed those produced by troglitazone.3,4 In addition, GW 1929 has neuroprotective effects in global cerebral ischemic-reperfusion injury that are related to reduced inflammation and apoptotic DNA fragmentation.5
