Smoothened ligand
ALX-270-426-M001 1 mg 281.00 USD
Do you need bulk/larger quantities?
A potent cell-permeable benzothiophene compound that modulates the coupling of Smo with its downstream effector by interacting with the Smo heptahelical domain (KD = 59 nM). Shown to induce Hedgehog pathway activation (EC50= ~3 nM in NIH 3T3-derived Shh-LIGHT2 cells) and counteracts Cyclopamine (BML-GR334) inhibition of Smo. Reported to act as an activator at low concentrations and as an inhibitor at very high concentrations.
