Cat. No. 3364
Chemical Name: 2-(Hexahydro-4-methyl-1H-1,4-diazep
Biological ActivityGLP and G9a histone lysine methyltransferase inhibitor (IC50 values are 0.7 and 1.7 μM respectively) that displays no activity at other histone methyltransferases up to 37 μM. Modulates H3K9me2 levels in mammalian cells and potentiates induction of pluripotent stem cells from somatic cells in vitro.
