Cat. No. 3852
Alternative Name: 2-PCPA
Chemical Name: (±)-trans-2-Phenylcyclopropylamine hydrochloride
Biological ActivityIrreversible 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.
