Product Overview:
AICAR is an activator of AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK).{15379} It increases AMPK kinase activity in isolated hepatocytes (EC50 = ~500 μM) and reduces HMG-CoA reductase activity and fatty acid and sterol synthesis in these cells. AICAR (0.5 mM) inhibits insulin-stimulated glucose uptake to 62% of control cells and reduces GLUT4 translocation by 2.5-fold in 3T3-L1 adipocytes.{15378} In astrocyte-enriched glial cells, AICAR (1 mM) prevents increases in protein levels of inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS), COX-2, and manganese superoxide dismutase (MnSOD) induced by LPS and amyloid-β (Aβ) (25-35) and expression of TNF-α, IL-1β, and IL-6 induced by LPS and Aβ42.{15380} AICAR inhibits autophagy in rat hepatocytes (IC50 = 0.3 mM) and induces apoptosis in rat β cells in a concentration-dependent manner.{47609,47610}

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.

Accreditations
ISO/IEC 17025:2005
ISO Guide 34:2009
