Biological Activity

HX 531 is a potent antagonist of retinoid X receptors (IC50 = 18 nM). HX-531 promotes white and brown pre-adipocyte differentiation into white adipocytes. HX 531 also inhibits bexarotene-induced brown adipogenic reprogramming of myoblasts.

For example, to modify the dose of resveratrol used for a mouse (22.4 mg/kg) to a dose based on the BSA for a rat, multiply 22.4 mg/kg by the Km factor for a mouse and then divide by the Km factor for a rat. This calculation results in a rat equivalent dose for resveratrol of 11.2 mg/kg.
