SR 18292 is an inhibitor of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-γ coactivator-1α (PGC-1α), a coactivator of transcription factors for genes involved in gluconeogenesis.1 SR 18292 (20 µM) increases acetylation of PGC-1α and, subsequently, decreases mRNA expression of phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase 1 (PEPCK1/Pck1) and the glucose-6-phosphatase catalytic subunit (G6Pc) in primary hepatocytes following stimulation with glucagon. In a dietary model of type II diabetes mellitus in mice, SR 18292 (45 mg/kg, i.p., for four days) reduces fasting blood glucose levels and the expression of liver Pck1. It also enhances glucose tolerance and insulin sensitivity in two mouse models of obesity.
