Biological Activity for Kartogenin
Kartogenin potently induces differentiation of human mesenchymal stem cells into chondrocytes (EC50 = 100 nM). Reduces disease severity in a mouse model of osteoarthritis; displays protective effects against osteoarthritic stimuli in mature chondrocytes in vitro.

Added to culture medium on days 1-3 at 10 µM to induced chondrogenic differentiation in an immortalized hBMSC cell line. After 7 days there was increased sulfated GAG production compared to basic controls and increased DNA yield compared to cells cultured in traditional chondrogenic differentiation medium.

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.
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.
