Chemical Name: N-Cyclopropyl-5-(2-thienyl)-3-isoxazolecarboxamide

Biological Activity

Neurogenic agent. Mediates neuroD reporter gene induction via activation of Ca2+ influx; increases expression of neurogenic differentiation 1 (NeuroD1) transcription factor. Induces neuronal differentiation in human cortical neuronal cells (HCN), adult mouse whole brain (MWB) and subventricular zone (SVZ) progenitors. Also shown to induce cardiomyogenic differentiation of Notch-activated epicardium-derived cells in vitro.

Technical Data

Soluble to 100 mM in DMSO and to 50 mM in ethanol
>99 %
Store at +4°C
