Application Notes

Adipostatin is a hydrophobic resorcinol metabolite first isolated from Streptomyces cyaneus as an inhibitor of glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase by researchers at the University of Tokyo in 1992. Glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase is an important enzyme for the regulation of adipocyte proliferation in the treatment of obesity. Adipostatin A inhibits the accumulation of triglycerides in model cells lines without affecting cell viability. Adipostatin A has antifilarial activity, identified in a high throughput assay using asparaginyl-tRNA synthetase from the filarial worm, Brugia malayi.
