Thiazovivin is a selective small molecule Rho-associated kinase (ROCK) inhibitor. When used in combination with ALK5 inhibitor SB-431542 and MEK inhibitor PD-0325901 , it significantly improves (200-fold) the efficiency of iPSC generation from human fibroblast reprogramming. Thiazovivin also improves the survival of human embryonic stem cells upon trypsinization. More over, by regulating E-cadherin mediated cell-cell interaction, Thiazovivin can protects human ES cells from death in the absence of ECM.
|Cell lines||hESCs cells|
|Preparation method||For clonal survival assays, single hESCs were diluted to clonal density and plated onto 96-well Matrigel-coated plate. For lowdensity survival assays, 500 cells were plated onto 96-well Matrigelcoated plate. To visualize hESC colonies, cultures were fixed in 4% paraformaldehyde in phosphate buffered saline (PBS) for 5 min, washed once in PBS, then stained for alkaline phosphatase (ALP) activity as described in the manufacturer’s instructions. ALP positive colonies were counted on an inverted microscope.|

|Animal A (mg/kg) = Animal B (mg/kg) multiplied by||Animal B Km|
|Animal A Km|
For example, to modify the dose of resveratrol used for a mouse (22.4 mg/kg) to a dose based on the BSA for a rat, multiply 22.4 mg/kg by the Km factor for a mouse and then divide by the Km factor for a rat. This calculation results in a rat equivalent dose for resveratrol of 11.2 mg/kg.
