Biological Activity:


Purmorphamine is a selective hedgehog pathway agonist that directly binds to and activates Smo receptor with an EC50 ~1 µM. It can promote the differentiation of both human and mouse mesenchymal progenitor cells into osteoblasts. In recent publications, purmorphamine was used as a patterning (ventralizing) molecule in differentiating human ESCs/iPSC into dopaminergic or motor neurons.


How to Use:



  • In vitro: Purmorphamine was used at 2-10 µM final concentration in cell culture.
  • In vivo: n/a
