Self-Replicative RNA reprogramming (blood cell reprogramming)

Product Classification : RNA Reprogramming for hiPSCResearch Theme : ES/iPS cells

Stemgent Brand

A Self- Replicative RNA reprogramming system optimized for Endothelial Progenitor Cells (EPCs), makes blood- to- iPSC conversion reproducible in labs.


 ・No genomic integration
 ・Feeder-free workflow
 ・Reprograms Endothelial Progenitor Cells (EPCs) derived from whole blood
 ・Optimized reprogramming protocol + EPC derivation protocol
 ・Only 2 transfections required


Only 2 transfections required! Select iPSC colonies in less than a month!

Pluripotency immunocytochemistry (ICC) of EPC-srRNA-iPS cell line derived from human EPCs. Nuclear pluripotency staining with Rex1, Nanog, and Oct4 antibodies is seen in red. Cell surface pluripotency staining with SSEA4, TRA-1-81, and TRA-1-60 antibodies is seen in green. Merged images are shown.

Primary reprogramming culture morphology progression, resulting from the reprogramming of peripheral blood derived EPCs with Stemgent StemRNA-SR Reprogramming Kit (Cat. No. 00-0075). iPS cell morphologies emerge as early as Day 14 and can be isolated by Day 26. Day 14 and Day 21 primary iPS cell colonies were identified using Stemgent StainAlive™ TRA-1-60 antibody.

Histological analysis of teratoma resulting from the injection of EPC-srRNA-iPS cells into the kidney capsule of NOD-Scid mice.

Normal karyotype of EPC-srRNA-iPS cell line expanded on Corning Matrigel with NutriStem XF/FF Culture Medium, which was confirmed by passage9.
