Biological Activity

Description DMH1 is a selective BMP receptor inhibitor with IC50 of 107.9 nM for ALK2, exhibiting no inhibition on AMPK, ALK5, KDR (VEGFR-2) or PDGFR. DMH1 inhibits autophagy.
ALK2 [1]
(Cell-free assay)
107.9 nM
In vitro

DMH1 inhibits BMP signaling with IC50 of 100 nM, and selectively inhibits the BMP-induced Smad1/5/8 activation. [1] DMH1 increases cardiomyocyte progenitors and promotes cardiac differentiation in mouse embryonic stem cells. [3] In addition, DMH1 as a BMP inhibitor, significantly reduces NSCLC cell growth, migration and invasion. [4]

Western blot
Integrin β1 / p-Smad / Smad1 / p-AKT / AKT ; 

PubMed: 26337467     

MTT cells were treated with DMH1 (3 μM or 5 μM) or with DMSO vehicle for 24 h. Proteins were then collected and probed for the expression of integrin β1, P-Smad1/5/8, Smad1, P-AKT and AKT. α-Tubulin was used as a loading control. 

Growth inhibition assay
Cell proliferation; 

PubMed: 26337467     

MTT cells were treated with DMH1 (3 μM or 5 μM) or with DMSO vehicle. Proliferation was assessed at the indicated times by the WST-1 assay. The experiments were performed two times with six technical replicates each, and are expressed as the mean ± SD. The values are normalized against those of DMSO-treated cells set to 100%. ***, P < 0.001. 

In vivo DMH1 dorsalizes the embryonic axis without disrupting the angiogenic process in Zebrafish embryos. [1] In proepicardial explants, DMH1 results in the greatest inhibition of epithelial sheet migration. [2] DMH1 (5 mg/kg i.p.)attenuates xenograft lung tumor growth in mice bearing A549 xenograft.

Kinase Assay:[1]
- Collapse

Kinase assay:

All kinase assays are conducted by Reaction Biology Corp. In brief, compounds are tested at 10 concentrations by 3-fold serial dilutions starting at 30 μM, using nonspecific kinase inhibitor staurosporine as control. In vitro kinase reactions are carried out in the presence of 10 μM (33P)γATP. Five kinases tested are the human BMP type-I receptor activin receptor-like kinase 2 (ALK-2/ACVR1), the human TGFβ type-I receptor activin receptor-like kinase 5 (Alk5/TGFβR1), the human VEGF type-II receptor (KDR/Flk-1/VEGFR2), the human AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK/A1/B1/G1) and the human platelet-derived growth factor receptor-β (PDGFRβ).
Cell Research:[4]
- Collapse
  • Cell lines: A549 cells
  • Concentrations: ~5 μM
  • Incubation Time: 48-96 hours
  • Method: About 10,000 A549 cells per well are seeded in 96-well plates and incubated for overnight. The culture medium is then changed to fresh medium containing DMSO or DMH1 at various concentrations. The cells are then incubated for 48 hours and 96 hours before treatment termination by replacing the medium with 100 μL of 10% trichloroacetic acid in 1× PBS, followed by incubation at 4°C for at least 1 hour. Subsequently, the plates are washed with water and air dried. The plates are stained with 50 μL 0.4% sulphorhodamine assay in 1% acetic acid for 30 minutes at room temperature. Unbound dye is washed off with 1% acetic acid. After air drying and solubilization of the protein-bound dye in 10 mM Tris solution, absorbance is read in a microplate reader at 565 nm.

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.
