ACP-105 was one of the first SARMs to be developed using the proprietary Receptor Selection and Amplification TechnologyTM (R-SAT). R-SAT is a functional cell-based assay that allows the monitoring of receptor-dependent proliferative responses of various receptor classes, including G-protein-coupled receptors and nuclear receptors like the Androgen Receptor (AR).
