Amidepsine A is an inhibitor of DGAT (diacylglycerol acyltransferase). This shows inhibitory effect in rat liver microsomes (IC50=10.2μM) and Raji cells (IC50=15.5μM). It has excessive accumulation of triacetylglycerol produced by DGAT which may cause fatty liver, obesity, and hypertriglyceridemia, and may lead to atherosclerosis, diabetes and metabolic disorders.
