2-Hydroxy-1-naphthylaldehyde isonicotinoylhydrazone; NSC-51355
AS-8351 has been used in a cocktail of nine small molecules used to efficiently induce cardiac reprogramming of human fibroblasts1. It is believed that AS-8351exerts its effects by modulating the activity of the JmjC domain-containing histone demethylases (JmjC-KDM). Thus each of the 22 genes in the JmjC-KDM family was abrogated using small hairpin RNAs which showed that only knocking down KDM5B (or using another KDM5B inhibitor such as PBIT) could phenocopy AS-8351 in generating cardiomyocytes.
