YK-11 is a SARM that acts as a gene-specific agonist of the androgen receptor in MDA-MB 453 cells. Because it works on a variety of different pathways than most androgen receptor mediated anabolics, YK11 is most typically used as a complement to other performance enhancing compounds. YK-11 has shown greater anabolic activity in vitro in C2C12 myoblasts than DHT [1, 2]. YK11 promoted a cascade of key myogenic regulatory factors in skeletal muscle tissue such as myogenic differentiation factor (MyoD), myogenic factor 5 (Myf5), to a significantly greater extent than DHT. This can in part explain why YK11 exerts its selective modulation of the androgen receptor. Unlike testosterone and most other androgen receptor mediated anabolic agents, YK-11 is orally bioavailable so it does not require injection for proper absorption.
What really sets YK-11 apart is that a key component of its anabolic activity is modulated via expression of follistatin. They discovered this by co-administering anti-follistatin antibodies with YK11 to measure the difference in effects . Follistatin has been shown to promote insulin-stimulated glucose and amino acid uptake into skeletal muscle cells, improving insulin sensitivity directly and increasing skeletal muscle mass . Follistatin proteins also block inhibitory ligands from binding to Transforming Growth Factor-ß .
Perhaps the most alluring effect of follistatin is binding and neutralizing of catabolic proteins Activin A, Activin B, and Myostatin. Unfortunately follistatin proteins themselves undergo rapid proteolysis and have limited bioavailability and half-life even when injected directly into a wasting muscle. YK-11 however stimulates the body to produce more follistatin proteins systemically and locally which may circumvent this shortfall of direct follistatin administration [2, 4].
