DAPT inhibits γ-secretase complex and indirectly inhibits Notch, a γ-secretase substrate. It is known to reduce Aβ40 and Aβ42 levels in human primary neuronal cells (IC50 = 115 and 200 nM for Aβ and Aβ42 respectively) and brain extracts. Its activity causes neural cells to commit to neuronal differentiation and has been shown to reduce colony-forming efficiency in mouse neural stem cells. DAPT has also been shown to promote differentiation of pancreatic cells from human pluripotent stem cells.
