The first small molecule agonists of the estrogen-related receptors have been identified. GSK4716 (3) and GSK9089 (4) show binding to ERRγ with remarkable selectivity over the classical estrogen receptors. Notably, in cell-based reporter assays, 3 mimics the protein ligand PGC-1α in activation of human ERRβ and ERRγ.
