Cat. No. 4126
Chemical Name: 4-[6-[4-(1-Methylethoxy)phenyl]pyra
Biological ActivitySelective inhibitor of the bone morphogenic protein (BMP) ALK2 receptor (IC50 = 108 nM). Exhibits no detectable inhibition of AMPK, ALK5, KDR (VEGFR-2) or PDGFRβ receptors. Blocks BMP4-induced phosphorylation of Smads 1, 5 and 8 in HEK293 cells. Promotes neurogenesis in human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) when used in combination with SB 431542 (Cat. No. 1614).
