Cardiogenol C is a diaminopyrimidine compound that induces the differentiation of MHC- (myosin heavy chain) positive cardiomyocytes from embryonic stem cells with an EC50 value of 0.1 µM. Cardiogenol C upregulates cardiac markers and induces cardiac functional properties in lineage-committed progenitor cells. Cardiogenol C can induce Mouse Hair Bulge Progenitor Cells to Transdifferentiate into Cardiomyocyte-like Cells.

Cardiogenol C hydrochloride (1 μM; 7 days) has a cardiomyogenic effect on P19 cells, it significantly increases atrial natriuretic factor (ANF, nppa) in P19 cells when it compares to untreated control cells.
Cardiogenol C hydrochloride (0.01-100 μM; 7 days) significantly increases ANF expression. In addition, another frequently used cardiac marker gene (NKX2-5) is also significantly increased by this small molecule in C2C12 cells.
Cardiogenol C hydrochloride (0.001-100 μM; 7 days) increases cardiac Nav1.5 sodium channel protein expression as dose-dependent manner in C2C12 cells.
Cardiogenol C hydrochloride (1 μM; 35 days) addition from day 0 significantly increases myocardial differentiation and results in a significantly increased percentage of CBs with beating cardiomyocytes. This small moleculepromotes the development of beating cardiomyocytes in cardiovascular progenitor cell-derived cardiac bodies.
Cardiogenol C hydrochloride (0.01-100 μM; 7 days) does not effect cell growth even at 10 μM. In addition, Cardiogenol C either solves in water or DMSO generates a similar effect. The highest concentration, 100 μM has significant cellular toxicity on C2C12 cells.
