OAC2 is an Oct4-activating compound that activates expression through the Oct4 gene promoter. In cells expressing Oct4 with Sox2, Klf4, and c-Myc, OAC2 (1 μM) enhances reprogramming efficiency by increasing the rate of production of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) from embryonic fibroblasts.
