Biological Activity for DBZ
DBZ is an inhibitor of γ-secretase aspartyl protease. DBZ blocks amyloid precursor protein-like (APPL) and Notch cleavage (IC50 values are 2.6 nM and 1.7-2.9 nM, respectively). By inhibiting Notch and the Notch pathway, DBZ improves efficiency of iPSC generation and production of iPSCs from mouse and human keratinocytes without KLF4 and CMYC. In an animal model of Alzheimer's disease, DBZ inhibits the cleavage of amyloid precursor protein into Aβ40.
DBZ synthesized to Ancillary Material Grade also available.

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a degenerative brain disease and the most common cause of dementia, affecting approximately 47 million people worldwide. Updated in 2015, this poster summarizes the structural and functional changes observed in the progression of this neurodegenerative disease, as well as classic AD drug targets.
