Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS) result from a reprogramming of somatic cells via transduction with viral vectors expressing the Oct4, Sox2, c-Myc, Klf4, Nanog, and Lin28 genes, which are essential for the establishment and maintenance of the pluripotent state. In properties, iPS are almost fully similar to embryonic stem cells (ESC). To date, iPS have been obtained from various differentiated cells of mice and humans. Along with ESC, iPSs are highly promising for research and medicine.
