Biological Data

Biological description

Organic solvent widely used for dissolving lipophilic substances.

Commonly used as a cryototectant in cryopreservation of stem cells.

DMSO activates the retinoblastoma (Rb) protein and increases the proportion of cells in the early G1 phase of the cell cycle.

DMSO improves directed differentiation of many cell lines. DMSO increases the competency of pluripotent stem cells (in >25 different embryonic and induced pluripotent stem cell lines) to respond to differentiation signals, enhance differentation across all germ layers and improve terminal differentiation into functional derivatives 

Endotoxin < 0.05 I.E(EU)/mL
