  • 15-deoxy-Δ12,14-PGJ2

15-deoxy-Δ12,14-Prostaglandin J2 (15-deoxy-Δ12,14-PGJ2) is formed from PGD2 by the elimination of two molecules of water. It binds selectively to PPARγ with an EC50 value of 2 µM in a murine chimera system.1,2 15-deoxy-Δ12,14-PGJ2 is more potent than PGD2, Δ12-PGJ2, and PGJ2 in stimulating lipogenesis in C3H10T1/2 cells. The EC50 for induction of adipocyte differentiation in cultured fibroblasts is 7 µM.1
