Chemical Name: 3-Chloro-N-[trans-4-(methylamino)cyclohexyl]-N-[[3-(4-pyridinyl)phenyl]methyl]benzo[b]thiophene-2-carboxamide

Biological Activity

Potent Smoothened (Smo) receptor agonist (Kd = 59 nM); antagonizes Cyclopamine action at the Smo receptor. Potently activates the Hedgehog signaling pathway in Shh-light 2 cells (EC50 ~ 3 nM). Induces pathway activation independently of Ptch proteins. Putative inhibitor of a cellular component required for Hedgehog signaling. Enhances neuronal differentiation of iPSCs into dopaminergic neurons.

Technical Data

Soluble to 100 mM in DMSO and to 50 mM in 1eq. HCl
>99 %
Store at -20°C
