Compound 1 was prepared using a short synthetic route. It showed an increase in the mRNA expression of PPARα and PPARγ, as well as the GLUT-4 levels. The antidiabetic activity of compound 1 was determined at 50 mg/kg single oral dose using a NIDDM rat model, showing a significant decrease in plasma glucose levels. Molecular docking of 1 into the ligand binding pocket of both PPAR´s isoforms showed important short contacts with the active PPARα and PPARγ residues.
