Chemical Name: (±)-trans-2-Phenylcyclopropylamine hydrochloride
Biological ActivityTranylcypromine hydrochloride is an irreversible inhibitor of lysine-specific demethylase 1 (LSD1/BHC110) and monoamine oxidase (MAO). Inhibits histone demethylation. In combination with CHIR 99021 (Cat. No. 4423), enables reprogramming of mouse embryonic fibroblasts transduced by only two factors, Oct4 and Klf4, into induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells.

Cells are treated with 2 µM Tranylcypromine hydrochloride.
To start reprogramming, cultures were switched to reprogramming medium (ES medium supplemented with 10 mM Parnate, 3 mM Chir99021, 1 mM A83-01, and 10 mM Forskolin)
