Description Cell permeable, reversible adenylyl cyclase activator. Neuronal differentiation inducer. Used in production of liver organoids.
I am currently working with forskolin. The quality of product and service is very satisfying. I am very happy to have access to your high quality products. Pojeong Park, PhD student, University of Bristol, UK
Very satisfied with this product, it works as expected in our liver tumouroid cultures. Hello Bio are a fantastic company that keep you informed of your order throughout the delivery process. Also a fan of the datasheets they provide. Verified customer, UK Biological Data
Cell permeable, reversible adenylyl cyclase activator which increases cAMP levels and inhibits platelet-activating factor (PAF).
It also inhibits mast cell degranulation and lowers intraocular pressure.
It is used as a neuronal differentiation inducer. It is also used as a 3D Growth matrix component and used in production of liver organoids.
Also displays vasodilating and hypotensive properties.
