Cat No. GTX400001

Application ICC/IF, CC, RT-PCR
Reactivity Human, Mouse
PRODUCT

Product Description

Minicircle DNA for iPSC Production. Easy iPSC is a simple non-viral solution for reprogramming terminally differentiated cells into pluripotent stem cells. One simple transfection delivers all four transcription factors required. This specially designed minicircle DNA plasmid is devoid of any bacterial replication sequences that would induce endogenous silencing mechanisms, significantly enhancing the transfection efficiency. The vector includes a GFP reporter to easily identify and facilitate sorting of pluripotent cells.
APPLICATION

Application Note

This protocol has been optimized for use in human adipose stem cells (hASC). Use in other cell types, such as fibroblasts, will require optimization by the researcher.

GTX400001 RT-PCR Image

RT-PCR analysis of markers for pluripotency and each germ layer confirms that easy iPSC-transfected hASC can be induced to differentiate into cells of each germ layer. Image from Jia et al. 2010. Nature Methods, 7(3).

GTX400001 RT-PCR Image

easy iPSC induces the expression of endogenous OCT4 in hASC as determined by RT-PCR. Primers specific for the 3' UTR of endogenous OCT4 (GTX80102) were used for analysis. Image from Jia et al. 2010. Nature Methods, 7(3).

GTX400001 Image

Embryoid bodies derived from easy iPSC-transfected hASC can be differentiated into cells of each germ layer. Image from Jia et al. 2010. Nature Methods, 7(3).

GTX400001 Image

Viruses cause transgenes to permanently integrate into the genome and risk insertional mutagenesis. easy iPSC allows for cells to be reprogrammed without integrating into the host cell genome. The southern blot shows multiple gene copies in virally-transduced cells.
