How to use

In Vitro:

BRD7389 (0.425-6.8 μM) induces insulin expression in mouse α-cells after 3 days treatment. BRD7389 induces a dose-dependent up-regulation of insulin (Ins2) mRNA, peaking at 0.85 μM; 5 days treatment with BRD7389 results in greater induction of insulin gene expression, about 50-fold at 0.85 μM. BRD7389 (0.85-6.8μM) significantly up-regulates Pdx1 mRNA expression in mouse α-cell line. BRD7389 also increases β-cell-specific gene expression in primary human islet cells. BRD7389 (1 μM; added 30 min prior to Carbachol treatment 48 h) fully abolishes carbachols timulated cell proliferation, but has little effect on the basal level of proliferation.
