Forskolin is a cAMP pathway activator, by activating adenylyl cyclase.


Forskolin allows maintenance of human embryonic stem cells in a naive or ground state similar to mouse embryonic stem cells. Forskolin also enables chemical reprogramming of mouse embryonic fibroblasts to induced pluripotent stem cells, when combined with other small molecules. Forskolin is a vasodilator, which can help in controlling the cause of glaucoma and reduce urinary tract infections.
