Product Description

Biological Activity

Description OAC1 (Oct4-activating compound 1) can enhance the efficiency of reprogramming.
Targets Oct4 [1]
In vitro OAC1 at 1 μM enhances reprogramming efficiency by activating both Oct4 and Nanog promoter-driven luciferase reporter genes. Furthermore, OAC1 enhances the pluripotent stem cells (iPSC) reprogramming efficiency and accelerates the reprogramming process in the quartet reprogramming factors (Oct4, Sox2, c-Myc, and Klf4) treated mouse embryonic fibroblasts (MEFs). The iPSC colonies derived using OAC1 along with the quartet factors exhibits typical ESC morphology, gene-expression pattern, and developmental potential. OAC1 seems to enhance reprogramming efficiency via increasing transcription of the Oct4-Nanog-Sox2 triad and Tet1, a gene known to be involved in DNA demethylation. While it doesn’t inhibit the p53-p21 pathway or activate the Wnt-β-catenin signaling. OAC1 may be used to enhance the reprogramming of somatic cells to a pluripotent state. [1]

Cell Assay: [1]

Cell lines Human ESCs transfected with human Oct4 and Nanog luciferase reporter genes
Concentrations ~1 μM
Incubation Time 24 h
Method The Oct4-luc or Nanog-luc cells are treated with compound OAC1 at 1 μM concentration. Luciferase reporter assays are performed 24 h after OAC1 treatment.

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.

Rat dose (mg/kg) = mouse dose (22.4 mg/kg) ×  mouse Km(3)  = 11.2 mg/kg
