FH1 is a potent and selective small molecule that enhances hepatocyte functions and promotes the differentiation and maturation of iPSC-derived hepatocytes toward a more mature phenotype in vitro. FH1 was identified by a high-throughput, cell-based screening using primary human hepatocytes. It was added to the basal medium with or without OSM on day 21 after the initiation of differentiation of iPSCs and acted over a period of 9 day to promote more pronounced hepatocyte morphologies, including polygonal cell shapes, visible nuclei and more noticeable bile canaliculi between hepatocytes.
