Biological Activity for TPPB

TPPB is a high affinity and cell permeable protein kinase C activator (Ki =11.9 nM), which induces differentiation of hESCs into Pdx-1 expressing pancreatic progenitor cells. TPPB also enhances the non-amyloidgenic processing of amyloid precursor protein, increasing secretion of sAPPα.
