A-769662 is an activator of AMPK that is used in research models to study signaling mechanisms involved in cellular homeostasis. A-769662 exhibits anticancer and antithrombotic activities. In prostate cancer cells, this compound inhibits cellular proliferation, migration, and invasion. In osteoblasts, A-769662 inhibits H202-induced apoptosis and decreases accumulation of ROS. Additionally, it also decreases platelet aggregation in vitro.
