DAPT is a γ-secretase inhibitor (with IC50s of 115 and 200 nM for total Aβ and Aβ42, respectively) that can reduce Aβ40 and Aβ42 levels in human primary neuronal cells and brain extracts, DAPT also inhibits γ-secretase complex and indirectly inhibits Notch, a γ-secretase substrate (Dovey, et al). Its activity causes neural cells to commit to neuronal differentiation (Crawford et al). and has been shown to reduce colony-forming efficiency in mouse neural stem cells (Androutsellis-Theotokis et al). DAPT has also been shown to promote differentiation of pancreatic cells from human pluripotent stem cells (D’Amour et al).
