Product overview

  • Name
  • Short description
    γ-secretase inhibitor. Also induces neuronal differentiation.
  • Biological description
    Cell permeable γ-secretase inhibitor. Blocks notch signaling. Reduces Aβ levels in vitro and in vivo (IC50 values are 115 and 200 nM for total β-amyloid and Aβ1-42 respectively). Enhances neuronal differentiation independent of hedgehog (Shh) signaling. Also promotes differentiation of neural stem/progenitor cells into neurons.
