GKA50 quarterhydrate 

Cat. No.: HY-15671A
Handling Instructions

GKA50 quarterhydrate is a potent glucokinase activator (EC50=33 nM at 5 mM glucose) and stimulates insulin release from mouse islets of Langerhans. GKA50 quarterhydrate is a glucose-like activator of beta-cell metabolism in rodent and human islets and a Ca2+-dependent modulator of insulin secretion. GKA50 quarterhydrate shows significant glucose lowering in high fat fed female rats.

Description

GKA50 quarterhydrate is a potent glucokinase activator (EC50=33 nM at 5 mM glucose) and stimulates insulin release from mouse islets of Langerhans. GKA50 quarterhydrate is a glucose-like activator of beta-cell metabolism in rodent and human islets and a Ca2+-dependent modulator of insulin secretion. GKA50 quarterhydrate shows significant glucose lowering in high fat fed female rats[1][2][3][4].

In Vitro

GKA50 (0.01-100 μM; 24 hours) enhances INS-1 cell proliferation with EC50 values ranging from 1 to 2 μM[2].
GKA50 (1.2 μM+40 μM glucose; 2-4 days) treatment reduces apoptosis induced by chronic high glucose in INS-1 cells[2].
GKA50 activates human glucokinase enzymatic activity with an EC50 of 0.022 μM. GKA50 stimulates insulin secretion in the pancreatic insulinoma cell line, INS-1, with an EC50 of 0.065 μM. GKA50 reduces chronic-high-glucose-induced apoptosis via modulation of glucokinase and apoptotic protein BAD[2].

Cell Proliferation Assay[2]

Cell Line: INS-1 cells (starved overnight with 3 μM glucose)
Concentration: 0.01-100 μM
Incubation Time: 24 hours
Result: Stimulated cell proliferation in a dose-dependent manner, with EC50 values ranging from 1 to 2 μM.
In Vivo

GKA50 (1-30 mg/kg; p.o.) gives significant glucose lowering in an oral glucose tolerance test[1].

MCE has not independently confirmed the accuracy of these methods. They are for reference only.

Animal Model: High-fat-fed obese female Zucker (fa/fa) rats[1]
Dosage: 1, 3, 10, 30 mg/kg
Administration: Oral administration
Result: Significant percentage glucose lowering.
