VCE-003.2 exerts a pro-neurogenic effect in vitro. a-b Mouse embryonic stem cells (R1 line) were treated with Vehicle, VCE-003.2 (500 nM) during neural differentiation for 21 days. Representative immunofluorescence images and quantification of CTIP2- and doublecortin-positive cells is shown (n = 3). c Luciferase reporter assay of the A4-MARS sequence of the CTIP2 locus was performed 24 h after P19 cell transfection under neuronal differentiation conditions and subject to pharmacological regulation as above. d P19 neurosphere formation assay was performed by culturing the cells for 24 h in the presence of Vehicle or VCE-003.2. Statistics: Unpaired t-test vs Vehicle a * p < 0.05; t = 2.82; df = 4; 95% Confidence interval (CI) = 0.3149 to 36.85; R2 = 0.66. b * p < 0.05; t = 2.91; df = 4; 95% CI = 0.02 to 1.03; R2 = 0.67. c * p < 0.05; t = 2.87; df = 5; 95% CI = 0.09 to 1.72; R2 = 0.62. d ** < 0.01 t = 5.91; df = 362; 95% CI = 66.20 to 132.20; R2 = 0.08.
