Biochem/physiol Actions

GW3965 is a liver X receptor full agonist on hLXRα and hLXRβ. GW3965 has an EC50 = 125 nM in a cell-free ligand-sensing assay of LXRα and profiles as a full agonist on hLXRα and hLXRβ in cell-based assays with EC50 = 190 nM and 30 nM, respectively. It is orally active in mice. When screened against a panel of nuclear receptors, it cross-reacted with only the pregnane X receptor (PXR). The literature agonist, T0901317 (Tularik), had an EC50 = 60 nM and 85 nM in the cell-free and cell-based assays, respectively.

Macrophage are specialized cells that contributes to the removal of detrimental contents via phagocytosis. Lipid accumulation in macrophages, whether from phagocytosis of dying cells or from circulating oxidized low-density lipoproteins, alters macrophage biology and functionality.

Recent studies have suggested that periodontal disease increases the risk of atherothrombotic disease. Atherosclerosis has been characterized as a chronic inflammatory response to cholesterol deposition in the arteries. Although several studies have suggested that certain periodontopathic bacteria accelerate atherogenesis in...
