Product Overview

Thiazovivin is a selective, cell permeable small molecule that directly targets Rho-associated kinase (ROCK)1. In addition, Thiazovivin protects human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) in the absence of ECM by regulating E-cadherin mediated cell-cell interaction1. This observation suggests that Thiazovivin promotes cell survival. In other studies Thiazovivin, in combination with inhibitors of the TGF-β receptor and MEK pathway, has shown to improve reprogramming efficiency by more than 200-fold2.

Light brown powder


For a 10 mM concentrated stock solution of Thiazovivin, reconstitute the compound by adding 321.2 μl of DMSO to the entire contents of the vial. If precipitate is observed, warm the solution to 37°C for 2 to 5 minutes. For use in cell culture, warm the medium just prior to adding the reconstituted compound. Once the compound is added, mix and filter-sterilize the medium using a 0.2 µM low-protein binding filter. Thiazovivin is soluble in DMSO at 100 mM.

Storage and Stability

Store powder at 4°C protected from light. Following reconstitution, store aliquots at -20°C. Stock solutions are stable for 6 months when stored as directed. 

Quality Control

The purity of Thiazovivin was determined by HPLC analysis. The accurate mass was determined by mass spectrometry. No acute cytotoxicity was observed in mouse embryonic stem cells following a 6 hour exposure to 1 nM - 100 µM of Thiazovivin.
