Product Overview:
A potent, semi-synthetic LXR agonist derived from extracts of the mayapple; induces the expression of the ABCA1 reverse cholesterol transporter to increase the efflux of cholesterol from enterocytes and thus inhibits the overall absorption of cholesterol (ED50 = 1 nM)
The liver X receptors (LXRα and LXRβ) are nuclear hormone receptors whose native ligands are oxysterols. Acetyl podocarpic acid anhydride (APD) is potent, semi-synthetic LXR agonist derived from extracts of the mayapple. APD acting through LXR in concert with the retinoid X receptor (RXR), its heterodimerization partner, induces the expression of the ABCA1 reverse cholesterol transporter. This acts to increase the efflux of cholesterol from enterocytes and thus inhibits the overall absorption of cholesterol (ED50 value of 1 nM). In transient transactivation assays, APD was found to be approximately 1,000 times more potent and have 8-10-fold greater maximal stimulation of LXR than 22(R)-hydroxy cholesterol. APD can be used as a positive control for the testing of LXR agonists, which have potential as therapeutic agents for the treatment of atherosclerosis.

Cayman Chemical's mission is to help make research possible by supplying scientists worldwide with the basic research tools necessary for advancing human and animal health. Our utmost commitment to healthcare researchers is to offer the highest quality products with an affordable pricing policy.

Our scientists are experts in the synthesis, purification, and characterization of biochemicals ranging from small drug-like heterocycles to complex biolipids, fatty acids, and many others. We are also highly skilled in all aspects of assay and antibody development, protein expression, crystallization, and structure determination.

Over the past thirty years, Cayman developed a deep knowledge base in lipid biochemistry, including research involving the arachidonic acid cascade, inositol phosphates, and cannabinoids. This knowledge enabled the production of reagents of exceptional quality for cancer, oxidative injury, epigenetics, neuroscience, inflammation, metabolism, and many additional lines of research.

Our organic and analytical chemists specialize in the rapid development of manufacturing processes and analytical methods to carry out clinical and commercial GMP-API production. Pre-clinical drug discovery efforts are currently underway in the areas of bone restoration and repair, muscular dystrophy, oncology, and inflammation. A separate group of Ph.D.-level scientists are dedicated to offering Hit-to-Lead Discovery and Profiling Services for epigenetic targets. Our knowledgeable chemists can be contracted to perform complete sample analysis for analytes measured by the majority of our assays. We also offer a wide range of analytical services using LC-MS/MS, HPLC, GC, and many other techniques.
