Reprogramming Enhancer

Bix-01294 is an inhibitor of the G9a histone methyltransferase, a key regulator of DNA methylation and transcriptional silencing in pluripotent cells [1]. Bix-01294 is believed to facilitate the reactivation of pluripotency genes and induce passive demethylation, thus promoting reprogramming. Indeed, Bix-01294 was found to improve reprogramming efficiencies of Oct4-Klf4-(OK)-infected neural progenitor cells by approximately 8-fold [2].
