Biological Activity for SAG dihydrochloride
SAG dihydrochloride is a water-soluble dihydrochloride salt of SAG (Cat. No. 4366). SAG is a potent Smoothened (Smo) receptor agonist (Kd = 59 nM); antagonizes Cyclopamine (Cat. No. 1623) action at the Smo receptor. SAG potently activates the Hedgehog signaling pathway in Shh-light 2 cells (EC50 ~ 3 nM) and induces pathway activation independently of Ptch proteins. SAG is a putative inhibitor of a cellular component required for Hedgehog signaling and also enhances neuronal differentiation of iPSCs into dopaminergic neurons. The compound can be used in protocols for the chemical reprogramming of somatic cells to iPSCs.

This SAG performs the BEST for stem cell differentiation to neuronal lineages. Other brands do not work. We use it at 1uM after dual SMAD inhibition.
