Recent developments in the discovery of FFA1 receptor agonists as novel oral treatment for type 2 diabetes mellitus

, : Recent developments in the discovery of FFA1 receptor agonists as novel oral treatment for type 2 diabetes mellitus. Bioorganic & Medicinal Chemistry Letters 24(14): 2991-3000

Despite the availability of established medication for treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) there still remains a significant unmet need for new effective, oral antidiabetic agents that improve glycemic control while maintaining an excellent safety profile. In this regard the FFA1 receptor has emerged as an attractive target in recent years. Activation of the FFA1 receptor has been shown to not only amplify glucose induced insulin secretion from pancreatic beta cells but also to stimulate incretin secretion from intestinal endocrine cells. The current review highlights on the latest developments and clinical data from evolving research on the potential of FFA1 agonists as effective treatment for T2DM.

We have analyzed the biochemical properties of a nonviable simian virus 40 (SV40) mutant encoding a large T antigen (T) bearing an amino acid substitution (Pro-584-Leu) in its hydrophobic region. Mutant 5080 has an altered cell type specificity fo...
