Simple Derivation of Transgene-Free iPS Cells by a Dual Recombinase Approach

​Scientists describe a new approach for the simple derivation of transgene-free induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells by the sequential use of two DNA recombinases, C31 Integrase and Cre, to control the genomic insertion and excision of a single, non ...[Read More]

Robust, Microfabricated Culture Devices with Improved Control Over the Soluble Microenvironment for the Culture of Embryonic Stem Cells

​The use of microfabricated systems combines good control over the cellular microenvironment with reduced use of resources in process optimization. Investigators describe a number of improvements to the design of the microfabricated system to signif ...[Read More]

Intrastriatal Transplantation of Adenovirus-Generated Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells for Treating Neuropathological and Functional Deficits in a Rodent Model of Huntington's Disease

​Adult rats received a regimen of 3-nitropropionic acid (3-NP) to induce behavioral and neuropathological deficits that resemble Huntington’s disease. At 7, 21, and 42 days after the initiation of 3-NP or vehicle, the rats received intrastriatal bil ...[Read More]

KAP1 Represses Differentiation-Inducible Genes in Embryonic Stem Cells through Cooperative Binding with PRC1 and Derepresses Pluripotency-Associated Genes

​The changes in the transcriptome upon conditional KAP1 knockout in embryonic stem (ES) cells overlapped with the changes during embryoid body formation. KAP1 repressed differentiation-inducible genes and derepressed pluripotency-associated genes in ...[Read More]
