General description

GW6471 prevents apoptosis and cell cycle arrest at G0/G1 in renal cell carcinoma. It reduces enhanced fatty acid oxidation and oxidative phosphorylation associated with glycolysis inhibition.


GW6471 has been used:
  • to investigate the role of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPARs) alpha in perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) induced developmental cardiotoxicity
  • to abolish the protection of bezafibrate (BZA) against hypertrophy
  • to block the enhanced activity of the hepatitis B virus (HBV) core promoter


5 mg in glass bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

GW6471 is a PPARα antagonist, which completely inhibits GW409544-induced activation of PPARα with an IC50 = 0.24 μM. GW6471 induces a PPARα conformation that interacts efficiently with co-repressors.

10-oxo-trans-11-octadecenoic acid (KetoC) and 10-hydroxy-cis-12-octadecenoic acid (HYA) are long-chain fatty acids generated from linoleic acid by the gut lactic acid bacterium Lactobacillus plantarum. These fatty acids have been reported to have anti-inflammatory activity in the intestine. However, little is known...

Fenofibrate, a peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors α (PPARα) agonist, reduces vascular complications of diabetic patients but its protective mechanisms are not fully understood. Here we tested the hypothesis that fenofibrate improves vascular endothelial dysfunction by balancing endothelium-dependent relaxation and contractility of...
