Biological Activity:

Y-27632 is a widely used, selective inhibitor of the Rho-associated protein kinase p160ROCK with a Ki value at ~ 0.14 µM. In many studies, it was shown and used to enhance the survival and cloning efficiency of many primary cell types after single cell dissociation without affecting their self-renewal properties, including hESC/iPSCs, neural stem cells, intestinal stem cells, and mammary epithelial cells.


How to Use:


  • In vitro: Y-27632 is typically used at 10 μM concentration in cell culture.
  • In vivo: In several hypertension rat models, Y-27632 was orally dosed at 30 mg/kg to significantly decrease blood pressure.
