Potent and selective inhibitor of Rho kinase (ROCK) activity, 10 mg
SKU: SM-0010-0010



Product Description

Thiazovivin is a potent and selective inhibitor of Rho kinase (ROCK) activity, a key player in cytoskeletal contraction and rearrangement. As ROCK inhibition occurs, human embryonic stem cell survival increases through enhanced cell-ECM attachment via E-cadherin signaling (Xu, et al.), in addition to allowing for an environment for improved human iPSC induction from fibroblasts (Lin, et al.). The addition of Thiazovivin also creates more effective conditions for the reprogramming of cord blood mononuclear cells into iPSCs (Hu, et al.).

Product Synonyms:
Tzv, Rock inhibitor
