Biological Activity

Description Dorsomorphin 2HCl 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.

(Cell-free assay)
109 nM(Ki)
In vitro

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. [1] Inhibition of AMPK activity by Dorsomorphin almost completely inhibits autophagic proteolysis in HT-29 cells. [2] 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.

Methods Test Index PMID
Western blot

PubMed: 30808965     

SMAD phosphorylation was assessed by Western blot after cells were treated with dorsomorphin (0 µM to 10 µM) from day 1 to day 3 or from day 3 to day 4.

Id1 / Id2 / Id3 ; 

PubMed: 25010525     

Dorsomorphin dramatically inhibited the expression of Ids. KMM cells were treated with 5 µM Dorsomorphin for 24 hours before harvesting. Expressions of Ids were detected by immunoblotting.

pAMPK / AMPK / pACC / ACC / pRaptor / HIF1α ; 

PubMed: 29531259     

PC-3 and LNCaP cells were treated with vehicle, 25 µM compound 8c, 25 µM compound 8c + 5 μM Dorsomorphin (8c + D) or 5 μM Dorsomorphin (D), for 1 hour or 24 hours and levels of the phosphorylated AMPK (pAMPK), phosphorylated ACC (pACC), phosphorylated Raptor (pRaptor) forms and HIF1α were determined by Western blot. Upper panel, representative Western blot of three different experiments. β-tubulin (β-Tub) serves as a loading control. Lower panel, densitometric analyses of bands represented as the mean of the ratio pAMPK/AMPK or pACC/ACC.

p-ERK / ERK / Bcl2 / BAX / Cleaved caspase-3; 

PubMed: 30155931     

Western blot analysis of the protein expression of ERK, p‐ERK, Bcl2, BAXand cleaved caspase‐3 in T98 cells stimulated by Compound C (0, 1, 5, 10 μmol/L) for 24 h.


PubMed: 30155931     

The representative western blot analysis showed that stimulation by Compound C for 24 h decreased the ratio of LC3BI/IIin T98 cells in a dose-dependent manner.

PubMed: 20689554     

Satellite cell-derived myoblasts were plated at high cell density (80–90% confluency) and cultured in proliferation medium for 2 days with or without Dorsomorphin. Immunostaining for MyHC showed that Dorsomorphin promoted myogenic differentiation and fusion in a dose-dependent manner. 

Id1 / MyoD ; 

PubMed: 20689554     

(a) Exposure to 3 μM Dorsomorphin for 6 h to inhibit BMP signalling resulted in a downregulation of Id1 expression in satellite cells associated with a myofibre. (b) Similarly, immunostaining of plated satellite cells after exposure to 3 μM Dorsomorphin for 18 h in proliferation medium also resulted in downregulation of Id1 protein. Scale bar equals 20 μm.

Growth inhibition assay
Cell viability (MM cells); 

PubMed: 25010525     

Dorsomorphin showed preferential toxicity to KMM (KSHV-transformed MM cells) cells. KMM cells or MM cells were seeded 4000 cells/well. 24 hours after seeding, medium was replaced with Dorsomorphin medium as indicated. Cell viability was measured by MTT assay 48 hours post Dorsomorphin treatment. Data were shown as mean ± s.e.m., n = 3.

In vivo Dorsomorphin (10 mg/kg) reduces basal levels of hepcidin expression and increases serum iron concentrations in adult mice. [3] Dorsomorphin (0.2 mg/kg, i.v.) significantly reduces VCAM-1 and ICAM-1 expression in the thoracic aorta of LPS-treated rats. [4]

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.
