DMSO (200 mg/ml)
A cell-permeable purine compound that induces osteoblast differentiation in C3H10T1/2 multipotent mesenchymal progenitor cells (EC = 1 M) and in MC3T3-E1 lineage-committed preosteoblasts. Also shown to induce transdifferentiation in pre-adipocytes and myoblasts. Its effects are reported to be synergistic with bone morphogenetic protein-4 (BMP-4). Reported to induce osteogenesis by activation of the Hedgehog signaling pathway.
