A series of tetrahydroquinoline-linked thiazolidinediones was designed and synthesized and their peroxisome proliferator activated receptor-γ (PPARγ) agonistic activities were evaluated. A number of analogs were revealed to have significant PPARγ agonistic activity. Among these compounds, compound 1h possessing N-heptyl moiety was found to be the most active in PPARγ transactivation assay. Molecular modeling suggested that the heptyl group of 1h appropriately interacts with hydrophobic amino acid residues in the active site of PPARγ.
