Derivation of three human induced pluripotent stem cell lines (JUCTCi014-A, JUCTCi015-A, JUCTCi016-A) from mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) derived from bone marrow, adipose tissue and Wharton's jelly samples


Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are recognized as a valuable source of cells in clinical treatment and tissue engineering applications. In this study, we created human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) from different MSC sources to evaluate the capacity of MSC-derived iPSCs to differentiate into any cell type of the human body and to serve as an alternative source for iPSC generation. Here in, the generated hiPSC lines retained their normal karyotype and showed similar STR-based identities to the parental cells. Reprogrammed cells also showed positive expression of the pluripotency markers and the ability to differentiate into the three germ layers. Copyright © 2020 The Authors. Published by Elsevier B.V.
