OSKM Selectively Target Leukemia

The four transcription factors that make up the Yamanaka “cocktail” (Oct4, Sox2, Klf4, and Myc, or OSKM) are well known for their capacity to reprogram somatic cells into induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs).

Increasing Dopamine Levels in Induced Ventral Midbrain Cells

Making high‐quality dopamine‐producing cells for basic studies or small molecule screening remains critical to the development of novel therapeutics for ventral midbrain disorders. However, many ventral midbrain assays suffer from low signal to noise ratio thanks to low levels of dopamine and tyrosine hydroxylase, the rate‐limiting enzyme for dopamine synthesis.

Patient-specific iPSCs Aid the Development of New Age-related Macular Degeneration Model

Researchers report on a new age‐related macular degeneration model that more faithfully mimics the interaction of RPE and Bruch's membrane under disease conditions

Deciphering the Role of Long Non-coding RNAs in ESC Differentiation

Researchers report how a large intergenic non-coding RNA inhibits the early stage of mouse embryonic stem cell differentiation by regulating LIF/STAT3 signaling

Midbrain Organoid Generation for PD Modeling

While recent studies have demonstrated the generation of human pluripotent stem cell (PSC)-derived midbrain organoids that display structural and functional features of the midbrain, multiple issues currently hinder clinical translation.

Granulosa Cells – The Key to Generating Functional Oocytes In Vitro?

Chemically-induced pluripotent stem cells generated from granulosa cells can differentiate into primordial-germ-cell-like cells and form oocytes that produce fertile mice

Neurodevelopmental Disease Modeling for Non‐stem Cell Biologists

Modeling human neurodevelopmental disease using stem cell biology techniques requires significant expertise to allow for the discovery of cell phenotypes.

Gene Correction in SCD-iPSCs

A new STEM CELLS Translational Medicine article led by Naoya Uchida (National Insti

PSC-derived Liver Cells as a Disease Modeling Tool

The liver is an essential organ in the body that performs crucial functions such as metabolism, and recently, researchers have invested enormous resources to generate liver cells from induced pluripotent stem cells and to develop robust three-dimensional liver organoids that faithfully resemble the liver. Now, a team led by Setjie W.
