Cat. No. 1623
Chemical Name: (2'R,3S,3'R,3'aS,6'S,6aS,6bS,7'aR,11aS,1
Biological ActivityInhibitor of hedgehog (Hh) signaling, likely via direct inhibition of Smoothened, the accessory protein to the putative Hh receptor Patched. Anticancer and teratogenic in vivo. Depletes stem-like cancer cells in glioblastoma and blocks tumor engraftment. Can also be used to induce differentiation of human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) into hormone-expressing endocrine cells.
