Structure of Stemolecule Y27632
Structure of Stemolecule Y27632

Product Overview

Y27632 is a cell-permeable small molecule Rho-associated kinase (ROCK) inhibitor1. Y27632 has been found to prevent apoptosis as well as enhance the survival and cloning efficiency of dissociated human embryonic stem (ES) cells without affecting their self-renewal properties or pluripotency2. This molecule has also been shown to enhance survival during the transplantation of ES cell-derived neural precursors3. Y27632 in combination with Pifithrin-µ significantly improves cell recovery after cryopreservation4.

Y27632 is widely used in naïve stem cell protocols5, such as the 5i/L/A/ protocol.

Stemgent conveniently provides all the components comprising the 5i/L/A media supplment necessary to support naïve pluripotent stem cell applications.
