Description: Pluripotin, also known as SC-1, is a potent and selective activator of murine embryonic stem (ES) cell self-renewal. Pluripotin is a useful tool for studying cancer stem cell biology. Pluripotin enhances the expansion of rabbit limbal epithelial stem/progenitor cells in vitro. Pluripotin works through dual inhibition of RasGAP and ERK1. Pluripotin may not only facilitate practical applications of stem cells in research and therapy, but also provide previously undescribed insights into the complex biology of stem cells.
