Title of Invention Method for producing steroidogenic cells

Present invention provides a method for producing steroidogenic cells comprising a step of treating intermediate mesoderm cells (incl. those induced from pluripotent stem cells) with a dopamine D1 receptor agonist to induce differentiation into steroidogenic cells. Further provided is a method for screening a substance that induces differentiation into steroidogenic cells from intermediate mesoderm cells using the expression level of 3β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase as an indicator.
