MedKoo CAT#: 573787

CAS#: 865231-46-5

Description: AMG-837 is a potent partial agonist of GPR40 (FFAR1) that is highly selective over GPR41, GPR43, and GPR120. GPR40 is a G protein-coupled free fatty acid receptor localized mainly on pancreatic islet cells that activates the Gq signaling pathway. AMG 837 increases insulin release when glucose levels are elevated, but it failed to do so in healthy volunteers during Phase I clinical trials.
