LDN 193189 dihydrochloride is a potent and selective ALK2 and ALK3 inhibitor (IC50 values are 5 and 30 nM, respectively); inhibits BMP4-mediated Smad1/5/8 activation. Exhibits >200-fold selectivity for BMP signaling over TGF-β signaling. Also exhibits selectivity over AMPK, PDGFR and MAPK signaling. Promotes neural induction of hPSCs in combination with SB 431542 (Cat.No. 1614). Also induces differentiation of hPSCs into nociceptive sensory neurons in combination with SB 431542 (Cat.No. 1614), SU 5402 (Cat.No.3300), CHIR 99021 (Cat.No. 4423) and DAPT (Cat.No. 2634).
LDN 193189 synthesized to cGMP guidelines also available.

Application of LDN 193189 in motor neurons differentiated from iPSCs Image shows IBJ6 human fibroblast induced pluripotent stem cells which have been differentiated into motor neurons. This was performed using a combination of LDN 193189 (100 nM) and SB 431542 (Catalog # 1614, Tocris) followed by Retinoic acid (Catalog # 0695, Tocris) and Purmorphamine (Catalog # 4551, Tocris) culture on Laminin for 18 days. Commitment to the motor neuron fate was assessed using the motor neuron marker anti-Human Islet-1 (red, R&D Systems®, Catalog # AF1837) and the general neuronal marker, beta III tubulin (green, R&D Systems®, Catalog # MAB1195). For visualization, the neurons were stained using Northernlights™ 557-conjugated Donkey anti-Goat Secondary Antibody (R&D Systems®, Catalog # NL001) and Northernlights™ 493-conjugated Donkey anti-Mouse Secondary Antibody (R&D Systems®, Catalog # NL009 NL009) and counterstained with DAPI (blue, Catalog # 5748, Tocris).

To perform inhibition of BMP-like receptors during various interrogations. Performed blanket inhibition of BMP-like receptor kinase activity with 50nM (working) and selective inhibition of ALK3/BMPR1A with 5nM (working) leaving ALK6/BMPR1B active. Non-toxic at concentrations used.
Be wary of storage as activity will degrade over time.
I used the product for 10 days to differentiate ipscs into a neuroepithelium

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 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.
