The primary macrocyclic structure is a PPARα ligand.1,2 Peroxisomes are small intracellular organelles found in animal cells that perform metabolic functions including respiration, oxidation of fatty acids, and cholesterol metabolism. Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPARS) are nuclear hormone factors. 3 PPARs were first identified in rodents in 1990. Structurally PPARs are similar to steroid or thyroid hormone receptor and are stimulated in response to small lipophilic ligands. 4 PPARα is expressed predominately in the liver, and to a lesser extent, in muscle, in the heart, and in bone. In the liver, PPARα plays a crucial role in fatty acid oxidation, which provides energy for peripheral tissues. It also elevates mitochondrial and peroxisomal fatty acid β oxidation rates, such as liver, heart muscle, kidney, skeletal muscle, retina, and brown adipose tissues, and have a potential role in oxidant/antioxidant pathways. 5,6

The Transient Receptor Potential Cation Channel Member 8 (TRPM8) is an androgen receptor involved in the detection and measurement of cold temperatures 7,8,9 It is related to cell proliferation, cell growth and anabolic activity. 10,11,12 TRPM8 also regulates energy metabolism and controls the clock gene and clock-controlled genes in brown adipose tissue. This is achieved through upregulation of REV-ERBα/β genes.13

(1R*,2S*)-N-(4-Methoxyphenyl)-5-methyl-2-(1-methylethyl) cyclohexane carboxamide is a potent TRPM8 agonist,  four times more potent than the ligand menthol.14 Modulation of REV-ERB, CLOCK and CLOCK -like gene expression is further evidenced by menthol’s modulation of the sleep/waking cycles of various species with genes conserved in humans. 15,16 It is reasonable to assume that the higher affinity to for the TRPM8 and longer half-life regarding metabolism, confers greater activity and comparable efficacy with SR9009.
