Cat. No. 2840
Chemical Name: N1-(β-D-Ribofuranosyl)-5-aminoimidazole-4-carboxamide
Biological ActivityCell-permeable, allosteric activator of AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK). Augments proliferation, differentiation and mineralization of osteoblastic MC3T3-EI cells and attenuates psychosine-induced expression of proinflammatory cytokines and iNOS in astrocytes. Promotes osteogenic differentiation of hAMSCs and BM-MSCs in vitro.
