Delivery of proteins has been regarded as the safest and most useful application in therapeutic application of stem cells, because proteins can regulate gene expression transiently without any genomic alteration. However, it is difficult to accurately measure efficiency or quantity of intracellular protein uptake. Here, we performed a comparison study of(More)
Spermatogonial stem cells (SSCs) can spontaneously dedifferentiate into embryonic stem cell (ESC)-like cells, which are designated as multipotent SSCs (mSSCs), without ectopic expression of reprogramming factors. Interestingly, SSCs express key pluripotency genes such as Oct4, Sox2, Klf4 and Myc. Therefore, molecular dissection of mSSC reprogramming may(More)
Although many factors have been identified to be involved in the development of the neuroectoderm during embryogenesis, it is still important to identify novel factors that convert undifferentiated embryonic cells into neuroectoderm. RuvB-like protein 2 (Ruvbl2) is known to regulate gene expression via chromatin remodeling by participating in multi-protein(More)
