Biological Activity

Dorsomorphin dihydrochloride is a potent inhibitor of AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) (Ki = 109 nM) and bone morphogenic protein (BMP) signaling. Dorsomorphin dihydrochloride inhibits AMPK activation induced by AICAR and metformin. Dorsomorphin dihydrochloride also inhibits the bone morphogenetic protein type 1 receptors ACTR-I (ALK2), BMPR-IA (ALK3), and BMPR-IB (ALK6). Dorsomorphin dihydrochloride induces autophagy in cancer cell lines via a mechanism independent of AMPK inhibition.

Method RT-qPCR
Cell Lines iPSC lines
Concentrations 1 μM
Incubation Time 72 h
Results We generated cortical neurons using a well-established protocol with small molecule dual SMAD inhibition for neural induction followed by plating of neuroepithelial cells for final differentiation
Cell Experiment
Cell lines Spermatogonial Cell
Preparation method Dorsomorphin was added to the medium at a final concentration of 0, 1, 2, 4, or 8 µM (in final 0.4% dimethyl sulfoxide). The cells were maintained at 28.5°C in an atmosphere of 3% carbon dioxide and the medium was replaced every 3–4 days.
Concentrations 0, 1, 2, 4, or 8 µM
Incubation time 3 weeks
Animal Experiment
Animal models C57BL/6 mice
Formulation DMSO
Dosages 10 mg/kg
Administration i.p.
Conversion of different model animals based on BSA (Value based on data from FDA Draft Guidelines)
Species Mouse Rat Rabbit Guinea pig Hamster Dog
Weight (kg) 0.02 0.15 1.8 0.4 0.08 10
Body Surface Area (m2) 0.007 0.025 0.15 0.05 0.02 0.5
Km factor 3 6 12 8 5 20
Animal A (mg/kg) = Animal B (mg/kg) multiplied by  Animal B Km
Animal A Km

For example, to modify the dose of Compound A used for a mouse (20 mg/kg) to a dose based on the BSA for a rat, multiply 20 mg/kg by the Km factor for a mouse and then divide by the Km factor for a rat. This calculation results in a rat equivalent dose for Compound A of 10 mg/kg.
