Human iPSC Generated from Peripheral Blood Cells

From Cell Stem Cell and Stem Cells and Development

Articles in the new edition of Cell Stem Cell and an online advance report from Stem Cells and Development report the production of human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) from peripheral blood samples, suggesting another potentially easier target cell for reprogramming, rather than cells from skin biopsies which require invasive collection techniques and long culture periods before use.   Navigate to the papers from Seki et al, Loh et al, Staerk et al and Kunisato et alby clicking on the hyperlinks.   Also see here for a preview of this work by Shinya Yamanaka.
