(A) Cells were pre-treated with 10 ng/ml TGF-β for 24 h, then 5 mM metformin and/or 1 uM (μM) dorsomorphin were added to the medium for another 24 h. Immunofluorescence staining showed that AMPK inhibition abolished metformin's effect of decreasing TGF-β-induced α-actin expression in HFL-1 cells. The nucleus were stained with 4', 6-diamidino-2-phenylindole in the merged images. Scale bars: 150 μm.

FGF21 activates myogenic and aerobic myofiber-associated genes expression via AMPK pathway. The activator (acadesine) or inhibitor (dorsomorphin) of AMPK pathway were used to treat the pcDNA3.1-21 or control transfected C2C12 myoblasts. For this experiment, four groups were set up: FGF21-ACA (pcDNA3.1-21‡acadesine), Control-ACA (control‡acadesine), FGF21-DOR (pcDNA3.1-21‡dorsomorphin), and Control-DOR(control‡dorsomorphin). The qRT-PCR was performed to detect the genes expression of FGF21 (A), AMPK (B), Sirt 1, Myoglobin(C), Desmin (D), MEF2c (E), a-actin (F). (G) The C2C12 myoblasts were transiently transfected with pCDNA3.1-21 or pCDNA3.1, Western blot showed FGF21 activated AMPK signal via FGF21-Sirt1-AMPK. For the phosphorylated AMPK (right), the intensity of band was normalized total AMPK, and then normalized by control. (H and I) FGF21, as well as AMPK activator acadesine (ACA), increased phosphorylation of AMPM, and myogenic genes expression, especially MyHC I, which was activated by ACA (FGF21‡ACA) and suppressed by AMPK inhibitor DOR(FGF21‡DOR). The data are presented as mean±SD (*P<0.05, **P<0.01, and P<0.001), n=ˆ3.

Effect of dorsomorphin on MCP-1 and adiponectin production in TNFα-stimulated 3T3-L1 adipocytes with or without AICAR. 3T3-L1 cells were preincubated with 1–10 µM of dorsomorphin (Compound C) with or without 2 mM of AICAR for 1 h and then treated with 50 ng/ml of TNFα (TD1, TD3, TD10, and TAD1, TAD3, TAD10). After 24 h, the MCP-1 (a) and adiponectin (b) concentration in the culture medium was assayed. Data are means ± SD of five observations. D10: Only dorsomorphin treated cells. a: Control (C) vs T, TD1, TD3 or TD10: p < 0.001, T, TD1, TD3 or TD10 vs TA, TAD1, TAD3, TAD10 or D10: p < 0.001, TA vs C or D10: p < 0.05.b: C or D10 vs T, TD1, TD3 or TD10: p < 0.001, T vs TA or TAD3: p < 0.005, T vs TAD1: p < 0.01, T vs TAD10: p < 0.001, TD1, TD3 or TD10 vs TA, TAD3 or TAD10: p < 0.001, TD1, TD3 or TD10 vs TAD1: p < 0.005.

Effects of BMP-7 and downstream pathways on the protectiveeffect of OGDPC against OGD/R in SH-SY5Y cells. BMP-7 was blockedby Noggin (200 ng/mL), MAPK signal was blocked by U0126 andSB203580 mixture (10 μmol/L each) and Smad signal was blocked byDorsomorphin (1 μmol/L) and Smad 1 RNAi. BMP-7 blockage com-pletely inhibited the protective effect of OGDPC as represented by (a)decreasing cell viability and (b) increasing LDH activity to the level of OGD/R treatment. MAPK and Smad blockage could partly inhibit theprotective effect. Values are presented as mean±standard deviation (SD)(n = 3). **P < 0.01 compared with control group;##P < 0.01 comparedwith OGD/R group;§§P < 0.01 compared with OGDPC group.

|Description||Dorsomorphin is a potent, reversible, selective AMPK inhibitor with Ki of 109 nM in cell-free assays, exhibiting no significant inhibition of several structurally related kinases including ZAPK, SYK, PKCθ, PKA, and JAK3. Also inhibits type I BMP receptor activity.|
Dorsomorphin inhibits ACC inactivation by either AICAR or metformin, and also attenuates AICAR and metformin’s effect to increase fatty acid oxidation or suppress lipogenic genes in hepatocytes.  Inhibition of AMPK activity by Dorsomorphin almost completely inhibits autophagic proteolysis in HT-29 cells.  in addition, Dorsomorphin selectively inhibits the BMP type I receptors ALK2, ALK3 and ALK6, and thus blocks BMP-mediated SMAD1/5/8 phosphorylation, target gene transcription and osteogenic differentiation. 
|In vivo||Dorsomorphin (10 mg/kg) reduces basal levels of hepcidin expression and increases serum iron concentrations in adult mice.  Dorsomorphin (0.2 mg/kg, i.v.) significantly reduces VCAM-1 and ICAM-1 expression in the thoracic aorta of LPS-treated rats. |
|In vitro||Ethanol||2 mg/mL warmed (5.0 mM)|
|DMSO||1 mg/mL warmed (2.5 mM)|
* Please note that Selleck tests the solubility of all compounds in-house, and the actual solubility may differ slightly from published values. This is normal and is due to slight batch-to-batch variations.
Calculate the mass, volume or concentration required for a solution. The Selleck molarity calculator is based on the following equation:
Mass (g) = Concentration (mol/L) × Volume (L) × Molecular Weight (g/mol)
*When preparing stock solutions, please always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the via label and MSDS / COA (available on product pages).
Calculate the dilution required to prepare a stock solution. The Selleck dilution calculator is based on the following equation:
Concentration (start) x Volume (start) = Concentration (final) x Volume (final)
This equation is commonly abbreviated as: C1V1 = C2V2 ( Input Output )
* When preparing stock solutions always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the vial label and MSDS / COA (available online).

Definitions of molecular mass, molecular weight, molar mass and molar weight:
Molecular mass (molecular weight) is the mass of one molecule of a substance and is expressed in the unified atomic mass units (u). (1 u is equal to 1/12 the mass of one atom of carbon-12)
Molar mass (molar weight) is the mass of one mole of a substance and is expressed in g/mol.
