GW9578 is a subtype-selective PPARα agonist (EC50s of 5 and 50 nM for murine and human PPAR-α) with potent lipid-lowering activity[1][2].

IC50 & Target

mouse PPARα

5 nM (EC50)


50 nM (EC50)

In Vitro

GW9578 exhibits activities on Murine PPAR-α, PPAR-γ, and PPAR-δ with EC50s of 0.005, 1.5, 2.6 μm, respectively. GW9578 exhibits activities on Human PPAR-α, PPAR-γ, and PPAR-δ with EC50s of 0.05, 1, and 1.4 μm, respectively[2].
Treatment of the CD8+ T-cell line, TK.1 cells with GW9578 (10 nM-1 μM; for 24 hours) is able to induce a dose-dependent increase in the amount of relative luciferase activity[3].
Treatment of murine T-cell thymoma EL-4 T cells with GW9578 (10 nM-10 μM; for 2 hours) leads to a significant decrease in IL-2 production compared with control cells[3].

Help & FAQs
  • Do most proteins show cross-species activity?

    Species cross-reactivity must be investigated individually for each product. Many human cytokines will produce a nice response in mouse cell lines, and many mouse proteins will show activity on human cells. Other proteins may have a lower specific activity when used in the opposite species.
