Biological Activity

DMH-1 is a selective inhibitor of bone morphogenic protein (BMP) type-I receptor activin receptor-like kinase 2 (ALK2) receptor (IC50 = 108 nM or 12.6 nM in in vitro kinase assays). DMH-1 exhibits 6- and 19-fold selectivity for ALK-2 over ALK-1 and ALK-3, respectively, and no significant inhibition of AMPK, ALK5, KDR (VEGFR-2) or PDGFRβ receptors. DMH-1 blocks BMP4-induced phosphorylation of Smads 1, 5 and 8 in HEK293 cells. Promotes neurogenesis in human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) when used in combination with SB 431542 (Cat. No. 1614). DMH-1 suppresses lung cancer cell proliferation, migration, invasion in vitro and reduces tumor growth in a mouse lung cancer xenograft model. DMH-1 inhibits cellular autophagy responses. DMH-1 induces intestinal differentiation in human intestinal organoids (hIOs) derived from human pluripotent stems cells (hPSCs). The compound can also be used in protocols for the chemical reprogramming of somatic cells to iPSCs.
