description

Ascorbic acid, vitamin C, is commonly produced in plants and many animals to the exclusion of humans and other primates. It can serve as an electron donor and powerful antioxidant. It is reported to be useful in enhancing the generation of human and mouse chemically induced PSCs and enhances the differentiation of embryonic stem cells into cardiac myocytes.
