Activin/BMP/TGF-β pathway inhibitor; Inhibits ALK5
· In combination with valproic acid, can replace SOX2 in reprogramming of mouse embryonic fibroblasts transduced with OCT4, KLF4 and c-MYC (Ichida et al.).
· Blocks chondrogenesis induced by mechanical load in human mesenchymal stem cells (Li et al., 2010).
· Restores the hematopoietic potential of mouse para-aortic splanchnopleural cells deficient for the Evi-1 transcription factor (Sato et al.).
· Impairs definitive endoderm differentiation competence in human embryonic stem (ES) cells (Jaremko et al.).
· Blocks TGF-β-induced endothelial-to-mesenchymal transition of NMuMg mammary epithelial cells or mouse ES cell-derived endothelial cells (Peng et al.; Kokudo et al.).
· Suppresses colony-forming ability of mouse and human leukemia-initiating cells cultured with OP-9 stromal cells, and, when combined with imatinib, reduces lethality in a mouse model of chronic myeloid leukemia (Naka et al.).
· Reduces invasiveness of MDA-MB-231 breast cancer cells in a matrigel invasion assay (Shiou et al.).
