Description: Gemigliptin, also known as LC15-0444, is a potent dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) inhibitor was approved in South Korea as an oral anti-hyperglycemic agent (anti-diabetic drug). Gemigliptin dose-dependently inhibited methylglyoxal-modified AGE-bovine serum albumin (BSA) formation (IC50=11.69 mM). AGE-collagen cross-linking assays showed that gemigliptin had a potent inhibitory effect (IC50=1.39 mM) on AGE-BSA cross-links to rat tail tendon collagen, and its activity was stronger than aminoguanidine (IC50=26.4 mM).
