Potent Smoothened (Smo) receptor agonist (Kd = 59 nM); antagonizes Cyclopamine action at the Smo receptor. Potently activates the Hedgehog signaling pathway in Shh-light 2 cells (EC50 ~ 3 nM). Induces pathway activation independently of Ptch proteins. Putative inhibitor of a cellular component required for Hedgehog signaling. Enhances neuronal differentiation of iPSCs into dopaminergic neurons.

Preparing Stock Solutions
The following data is based on the product molecular weight 490.06. Batch specific molecular weights may vary from batch to batch due to solvent of hydration, which will affect the solvent volumes required to prepare stock solutions.
|Concentration / Solvent Volume / Mass||1 mg||5 mg||10 mg|
|1 mM||2.04 mL||10.2 mL||20.41 mL|
|5 mM||0.41 mL||2.04 mL||4.08 mL|
|10 mM||0.2 mL||1.02 mL||2.04 mL|
|50 mM||0.04 mL||0.2 mL||0.41 mL|
