Description: AM-4668 is a potent and selective GPR40 agonist. AM-4668, which is more potent than AMG 837, possesses excellent pharmacokinetic properties across species, and reduces the plasma glucose levels in an OGTT study in human GPR40 knock-in mice. G-protein coupled receptor 40 (GPR40, or FFA1) is highly expressed in pancreatic β cells and responds to endogenous fatty acids resulting in amplification of insulin secretion only in the presence of elevated glucose levels. Therefore, GPR40 agonists may lower blood glucose levels with decreased risk of hypoglycemia compared to classic insulin secretagogues.
