Hypoglycemic Agent for Diabetes Research
Metformin Hydrochloride

Metformin hydrochloride is a biguanide hypoglycemic agent. Through activation of AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK), it exerts a hypoglycemic effect by inhibiting hepatic gluconeogenesis, enhancing peripheral glucose utilization, and delaying uptake of glucose from the intestinal tract. Because metformin hydrochloride exerts a hypoglycemic effect without stimulation of insulin secretion from pancreatic beta cells, it is commonly used for the treatment of type 2 diabetes in clinical settings. It is recommended as a basic reagent for study of diabetes.
