Generation and characterization of cynomolgus monkey kidney fibroblasts (cmKF)-derived induced pluripotent stem cells (cmKF-iPS-C5)

Summary

Cynomolgus monkeys, a non-human primate species, are genetically and physiologically similar to humans; hence, they have been employed as an ideal developmental and biomedical model. Non-human primate animals and their induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) derivatives have been used as a research tool to investigate autologous regenerative medicine. Here, we reprogrammed cynomolgus monkey kidney fibroblasts (cmKFs) as a control for animal iPSCs and to study autologous transplant. The resulting cmKF-iPSCs, which displayed canonical characteristics of PSCs, could be used as a unique model for autologous cell-based therapy. Copyright © 2022 The Authors.
