Product Details

Biological Activity

Crotonic Acid is an induces histone modifications in chemically induced pluripotent stem cells (CiPSCs). Activates gene expression, facilitates telomere maintenance and increases telomere length, and enhances reprogramming of MEFs to iPSCs using a small molecule cocktail including valproic acid (Cat. No. 2815), CHIR 99021 (Cat. No. 4423), tranylcypromine (Cat. No. 3852), forskolin (Cat. No. 1099), AM 580 (Cat. No. 0760), EPZ 004777 (Cat. No. 5567), SGC 0946 (Cat. No. 4541) and PD 0325901 (Cat. No. 4192).
