GPR119 is increasingly seen as an attractive target for the treatment of type II diabetes and other elements of the metabolic syndrome. During a programme aimed at developing agonists of the GPR119 receptor, we identified compounds that were potent with reduced hERG liabilities, that had good pharmacokinetic properties and that displayed excellent glucose-lowering effects in vivo. However, further profiling in a GPR119 knock-out (KO) mouse model revealed that the biological effects were not exclusively due to GPR119 agonism, highlighting the value of transgenic animals in drug discovery programs. © 2011 Elsevier Ltd.
