CL 316,243 hydrate has been used:
  • as a β-agonists to inject mice and study its effect on the expression of mammalian major facilitator superfamily domain-containing protein (Mfsd2a)
  • as an adrenergic agonist to stimulate adrenergic response in order to study the metabolic activity of brown, beige and white adipose tissues in mice
  • as a β3-adrenergic agonist to inject mice for in vivo lipolytic challenge

Biochem/physiol Actions

β Adrenoceptor is expressed in a number of tissues such as heart, adipose tissue, colon and other tissues. It is associated with many different biological functions. β Adrenoceptor fills in as an objective for treating type 2 diabetes, heart failure, cachexia, obesity, metabolic disorder, issues related with bladder, colon and malignant tumor growth. Depression and anxiety can also be treated via β adrenoceptor. CL 316,243 is known to have antidiabetic action via β adrenoceptor. It is a potent stimulator of lipolysis. It also activates β3- adrenoceptors on neurons in hypothalamic areas that are important in the central regulation of appetite.
CL 316,243 is a β3 adrenoceptor agonist; anti-obesity agent.

The possible existence of a beta3-adrenergic receptor (beta3-AR) in the human detrusor muscle was investigated by in vitro functional studies and analysis of mRNA expression. Isoprenaline, noradrenaline and adrenaline each produced a concentration-dependent relaxation of the human detrusor. The rank...

It has been suggested that beta(3)-adrenoceptor (beta(3)-AR) agonists affect not only the efferent but also the afferent pathways innervating the bladder. In addition, prostaglandin E(2) (PGE(2)) causes bladder hyperactivity in conscious rats. We investigated the direct effects of a beta(3)-AR...

Most phosphoproteomic studies to date have been limited to the identification of phosphoproteins and their phosphorylation sites, and have not assessed the stoichiometry of protein phosphorylation, a critical parameter reflecting the dynamic equilibrium between phosphorylated and non-phosphorylated pools of proteins....
