Biochem/physiol Actions

Piclamilast is a potent and selective cyclic AMP phosphodiesterase-4 inhibitor that exhibits equal, high affinity for both the PDE4 high- and low-affinity rolipram binding states (HARBS and LARBS). Recent studies shown that piclamilast inhibits Trypanosoma brucei PDEB1 (TbrPDEB1) and TbrPDEB2.

Piclamilast is also known as N-(3,5-dichloropyrid-4-yl)-3-cyclopentyloxy-4-methoxybenzamide. Piclamilast regulates the cAMP (cyclic adenosine monophosphate) signaling pathway. It increases the retinoid-dependent transactivation and the degradation of retinoic acid receptor α (RARα).
