Product Information


Y-27632 is a selective and potent ROCK inhibitor.
Y-27632 plays various roles including the contraction of vascular smooth muscle cells via ROCK signaling pathways.
Furthermore, it suppresses cell death of human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) and human induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (hiPSCs) at cell dispersion and increases the survival rate of hESCs and hiPSCs during cryopreservation.

Requirement Specification
Appearance White to pale yellow, crystalline powder to powder
Assay (HPLC) ≧98.0%
Solubility in water To pass test
Specific rotation [α]D20(c=1.0,CH3OH) +2.0~+10.0゜
Bacterial endotoxins※ <0.25EU/mg
Mycoplasma test※ To pass test


  • You can shift Research and Discovery to manufacturing smoothly.
  • CultureSure Y-27632 is tested mycoplasma and endotoxin.
