Inhibitor of PPARα activation. Inhibits 5-lipoxygenase-activating protein (FLAP) and leukotriene biosynthesis. Binds to FLAP with high affinity and prevents the activation of 5-lipoxygenase. IC50’s for leukotriene biosynthesis: 2.5 nM in intact leukocytes; 1.1 µM in whole blood. Induces apoptosis through the mitochondrial pathway.
