MGAT2-IN-2 is a potent and selective acyl CoA:monoacylglycerol acyltransferase 2 (MGAT2) inhibitor with an IC50 of 3.4 nM.

IC50 & Target[1]


3.4 nM (IC50)

In Vitro

MGAT2-IN-2 (Compound 24d) exhibits potent MGAT2 inhibitory activity with an IC50 value of 3.4 nM and a ligand lipophilicity efficiency (LLE) value of 5.4[1]. MGAT2-IN-2 (Compound 2) exhibits time-dependent inhibition (TDI) of cytochrome P450 3A4 (CYP3A4). Preincubation of MGAT2-IN-2 with microsomes leads to a significant loss of the activity of CYP3A4 relative to that under a condition without preincubation[2].

In Vivo

Effect of MGAT2-IN-2 on plasma TG is elevated during the oral fat tolerance test in C57BL/6J mice. MGAT2-IN-2 (3, 10 and 30 mg/kg) is orally administered 6 h prior to oil challenge. Pharmacokinetic studies reveal that MGAT2-IN-2 displays a high plasma concentration (AUC0-8h=842 ng•h/mL) and favorable oral bioavailability (F=52%), which are probably driven by the improved stability against oxidative metabolism and hydrolysis. For evaluating the in vivo efficacy, MGAT2-IN-2 is examined for its effect on hypertriglyceridemia during oral fat tolerance test (OFTT) using C57BL/6J mice. To inhibit the hydrolysis of plasma triacylglycerol (TG) by lipoprotein lipase (LPL), mice are pretreated with an LPL inhibitor, Pluronic F127, permitting measurement of the accumulation of plasma TG following olive oil administration. MGAT2-IN-2 and vehicle are administered 6 h before the oral olive oil load, and plasma chylomicron TG concentrations are monitored for 4 h. MGAT2-IN-2 effectively and dose-dependently suppresses plasma TG elevation after olive oil challenge. The TG-lowering effect of MGAT2-IN-2 is significant (p<0.025) at doses of 10 and 30 mg/kg. A similar effect of reducing the rate of fat entrance into the circulation is observed in MGAT2 gene knockout mice[1].

Kinase Assay

The test compounds (e.g., MGAT2-IN-2) are dissolved in 5 μL of an assay buffer, which consists of 100 mM Tris-HCl (pH 7.5), 5 mM MgCl2, 200 mM sucrose, 0.01% Tween 20, 2 mM DTT, 0.01% BSA and 5% DMSO and incubated with 10 μL of 0.6 μg/mL MGAT2 enzyme for 60 min. The reaction is started with the addition of 5 μL of 13C×18 oleoyl-CoA and 2-oleoyl-glycerol at 20 μM each. After incubation at rt for 30 min, the reaction is stopped with Acetonitrile containing 0.88% formic acid and 1.3 μM 1,2-dioleoyl-glycerol as an internal standard. High-throughput online solid phase extraction is performed using a RapidFire 300. Mass spectrometric analysis is performed using an API-4000 triple quadrupole mass spectrometer in positive SRM mode[1].

Animal Administration

Male C57BL/6J mice (20-25 g) are used in the OFTT study. The animals are fed with standard chow and tap water ad libitum, maintained at 23±3 °C with a constant humidity of 40-70%, and acclimated with a cycle of 12 h of light and 12 h of darkness. Overnight fasted mice are orally treated with a single dose of 3, 10 and 30 mg/kg body weight of MGAT2-IN-2. At 6 h after the treatment of MGAT2-IN-2, mice are orally given 8 mL/kg olive oil or water.
