Description: AC-55541 is a protease-activated receptor (PAR) 2 agonist. AC-55541activated PAR2 signaling in cellular proliferation assays, phosphatidylinositol hydrolysis assays, and Ca(2+) mobilization assays, with potencies ranging from 200 to 1000 nM. AC-55541 was well absorbed when administered intraperitoneally to rats, each reaching micromolar peak plasma concentrations. AC-55541 was stable to metabolism by liver microsomes and maintained sustained exposure in rats, with elimination half-lives of 6.1. Systemic administration of either AC-55541 or AC-264613 produced a similar degree of hyperalgesia as was observed when the compounds were administered locally. AC-55541 may be useful in probing the physiological functions of PAR2 receptors.
