Biological Activity for DAPT
DAPT is a γ-secretase inhibitor. DAPT reduces Aβ40 and Aβ42 levels in human primary neuronal cultures (IC50 values are 115 and 200 nM for total Aβ and Aβ42 respectively) and in brain extract, cerebrospinal fluid and plasma in vivo. DAPT has no effect on APPα and APPβ levels. DAPT blocks Notch signaling in hybrid human-mouse fetal thymus organ culture (FTOC) and causes ESCs to commit to neuronal differentiation. DAPT can be used in a small molecule cocktail to derive cortical neurons from hPSCs and to maintain hepatocytes in culture. DAPT also promotes the formation of cone photoreceptors in retinal organoids.
For more information about how DAPT may be used, see our protocols: Accelerated Induction of Cortical Neurons from hiPSCs, Human iPSC-derived Myoblasts, Generating Midbrain Dopaminergic Neurons from hPSCs.
DAPT synthesized to Ancillary Material Grade also available.

Stem Cells Scientific Review
Written by Kirsty E. Clarke, Victoria B. Christie, Andy Whiting and Stefan A. Przyborski, this review provides an overview of the use of small molecules in the control of stem cell growth and differentiation. Key signaling pathways are highlighted, and the regulation of ES cell self-renewal and somatic cell reprogramming is discussed. Compounds available from Tocris are listed.
Huntington's Disease PosterUpdated
Huntington's disease (HD) is a severe monogenic neurodegenerative disorder, which is characterized by the prevalent loss of GABAergic medium spiny neurons (MSN) in the striatum. This poster summarizes the effects of mutant huntingtin aggregation implicated in the pathology of HD, as well as highlighting the use of iPSCs for HD modeling.
Parkinson's disease (PD) causes chronic disability and is the second most common neurodegenerative condition. This poster outlines the neurobiology of the disease, as well as highlighting current therapeutic treatments for symptomatic PD, and emerging therapeutic strategies to delay PD onset and progression.
Stem Cell Workflow Poster
Stem cells have potential as a source of cells and tissues for research and treatment of disease. This poster summarizes some key protocols demonstrating the use of small molecules across the stem cell workflow, from reprogramming, through self-renewal, storage and differentiation to verification. Advantages of using small molecules are also highlighted.
