Generation of OCT4-EGFP, NANOG-tdTomato dual reporter human induced pluripotent stem cell line, KKUi001-A, using the CRISPR/Cas9 system


OCT4 and NANOG are core transcription factor genes in self-renewal, differentiation, and reprogramming. Here, we generated an OCT4-EGFP, NANOG-tdTomato dual reporter hiPSC line, KKUi001-A, on the basis of human induced pluripotent stem cells using CRISPR/Cas9 technology. EGFP and tdTomato reporter were inserted into before the stop codon of OCT4 and NANOG, respectively. Simultaneous expression of EGFP and tdTomato was observed when expression of OCT4 and NANOG was changed during differentiation and reprogramming. KKUi001-A hiPSC line will be a useful tool to find initial time point of OCT4 and NANOG expression during reprogramming process and to screen small molecules that promote reprogramming.
