Late Passage Human Fibroblasts Induced to Pluripotency Are Capable of Directed Neuronal Differentiation

Successful reprogramming of human fibroblasts after more than 20 passages in vitro, to a pluripotent state with four transcription factors: Oct4, Sox2, Klf4, and c-Myc is reported.

Reprogramming of human somatic cells to pluripotency with defined factors

The data demonstrate that defined factors can reprogramme human cells to pluripotency, and establish a method whereby patient-specific cells might be established in culture.

Generation of induced pluripotent stem cells from human blood.

The ability to reprogram cells from human blood will allow the generation of patient-specific stem cells for diseases in which the disease-causing somatic mutations are restricted to cells of the hematopoietic lineage.

Generation of human induced pluripotent stem cells from dermal fibroblasts

Methods to use dermal fibroblasts easily obtained from an individual human to generate human induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells by ectopic expression of the defined transcription factors KLF4, OCT4, SOX2, and C-MYC are described.

Generation of human-induced pluripotent stem cells

This protocol describes how to establish primary human fibroblasts lines and how to derive iPS cells by retroviral transduction of reprogramming factors, and takes 2 months to complete reprograming human primary fibro Blasts starting from biopsy.

Human Pluripotent Stem Cells (iPSC) Generation, Culture, and Differentiation to Lung Progenitor Cells.

The following protocols offer a general guideline for the induction of iPSCs from fibroblasts, and for culture and expansion to produce lung precursor cells.

Direct reprogramming of human neural stem cells by OCT4

It is demonstrated that the transcription factor OCT4 is sufficient to reprogram human neural stem cells to pluripotency and will advance the field further towards understanding reprogramming and generating patient-specific pluripotent stem cells.

Generation of Mouse-Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells by Lentiviral Transduction.

A protocol for the generation of iPS cells from mouse embryonic fibroblasts (MEFs) using a doxycycline (Dox)-inducible lentiviral transduction system and the derivation of clonal iPS cell lines is described.



In vitro reprogramming of fibroblasts into a pluripotent ES-cell-like state

The results show that the biological potency and epigenetic state of in-vitro-reprogrammed induced pluripotent stem cells are indistinguishable from those of ES cells.

The establishment directly from normal preimplantation mouse embryos of a cell line that forms teratocarcinomas when injected into mice makes feasible the isolation of pluripotent cells lines from various types of noninbred embryo, including those carrying mutant genes.

Differentiation of Human Embryonic Stem Cells into Embryoid Bodies Comprising the Three Embryonic Germ Layers

The ability to induce formation of human embryoid bodies that contain cells of neuronal, hematopoietic and cardiac origins will be useful in studying early human embryonic development as well as in transplantation medicine.

New cell lines from mouse epiblast share defining features with human embryonic stem cells

It is shown that cell lines can be derived from the epiblast, a tissue of the post-implantation embryo that generates the embryo proper, and interrogated to understand how pluripotent cells generate distinct fates during early development.

Embryonic stem cell lines derived from human blastocysts.

Human blastocyst-derived, pluripotent cell lines are described that have normal karyotypes, express high levels of telomerase activity, and express cell surface markers that characterize primate

Establishment in culture of pluripotential cells from mouse embryos

The establishment in tissue culture of pluripotent cell lines which have been isolated directly from in vitro cultures of mouse blastocysts are reported, able to differentiate either in vitro or after innoculation into a mouse as a tumour in vivo.

Apoptosis and differentiation of human embryonic stem cells induced by sustained activation of c-Myc

Activation of c-MycER in hES cells induced apoptosis and differentiation into extraembryonic endoderm and trophectoderm lineages concomitant with reduced expression of the pluripotent markers Oct4 and Nanog, suggesting an important role for the integrin/extracellular matrix interaction in the regulation of ES cell behavior.
