Catalog Number: 5148
Chemical Name: 4-(2-Methyl-4-pyridinyl)-N-[4-(3-pyridinyl)phenyl]benzeneacetamide
Biological Activity
Highly potent inhibitor of Porcupine (PORCN), a membrane-bound O-acyltransferase (MBOAT) (IC50 = 74 pM). Shown to inhibit Wnt signaling pathways. Blocks progression of mammary tumors in MMTV-WNT1 transgenic mice and downregulates Wnt/β-catenin target genes. Induces cardiomyocyte differentiation from human iPSCs following culture with CHIR 99021 (Cat. No. 4423). Cell permeable and orally bioavailable.
