Description: AM-2394 is a potent and selective Glucokinase agonist (GKA), which catalyzes the phosphorylation of glucose to glucose-6-phosphate. AM-2394 activates GK with an EC50 of 60 nM, increases the affinity of GK for glucose by approximately 10-fold, exhibits moderate clearance and good oral bioavailability in multiple animal models, and lowers glucose excursion following an oral glucose tolerance test in an ob/ob mouse model of diabetes.

Additional Information

Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is a disease characterized by elevated plasma glucose in the presence of insulin resistance and inadequate insulin secretion. Glucokinase (GK), a member of the hexokinase enzyme family, catalyzes the phosphorylation of glucose to glucose-6-phosphate in the presence of ATP.
