Identification and structure-activity relationship of phenolic acyl hydrazones as selective agonists for the estrogen-related orphan nuclear receptors ERRbeta and ERRgamma.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

The first small molecule agonists of the estrogen-related receptors have been identified. GSK4716 (3) and GSK9089 (4) show binding to ERRgamma with remarkable selectivity over the classical estrogen receptors. Notably, in cell-based reporter assays, 3 mimics the protein ligand PGC-1alpha in activation of human ERRbeta and ERRgamma.
