Biological Activity

AY 9944 dihydrochloride is an inhibitor of hedgehog (Hh) signaling, possibly via several mechanisms. Inhibits Δ7-dehydrocholesterol reductase (IC50 = 13 nM), thus reduces cholesterol biosynthesis, and also inhibits cholesterol esterification. May also directly block the cellular response to Hh proteins. Teratogenic in vivo.

Technical Data

Soluble to 50 mM in water and to 5 mM in DMSO
Desiccate at RT
