Tideglusib Suppresses Stem-Cell-Like Features and Progression of Osteosarcoma by Inhibiting GSK-3β/NOTCH1 Signaling

The authors found that tideglusib (TID) markedly reduced the cell viability of different osteosarcoma cell lines. Cell cycle arrest distributed in G2/M was markedly up-regulated in TID-incubated osteosarcoma cells through enhancing p21 expression levels.
