To dissolve CHIR for kidney differentiation from iPSC.
By Pinyuan Tian on 08/07/2018
Assay Type: In Vitro
Species: Human
Cell Line/Tissue: iPSC

DMSO is used for dissolving CHIR (4423).Reconstitute 10 mg of CHIR in 2.149 ml of DMSO for a final concentration of 10mM.

Make 100µl aliquots and keep them at −80 °C for 6-12 months.
