Generation of a transgene-free human induced pluripotent stem cell line (UNIPDi001-A) from oral mucosa epithelial stem cells
Human oral mucosa epithelial stem cells (hOMESCs) were obtained from a fresh oral biopsy collected from a healthy subject at the Fondazione Banca degli Occhi del Veneto (FBOV). An integration-free reprogramming protocol was applied exploiting episomal plasmids transfected into cells using a Nucleofector device. Around day 20 post transfection, several human induced pluripotent stem cell (hiPSC) colonies were manually picked and expanded. One of these (UNIPDi001-A-hiPSCs) expressed undifferentiated state marker alkaline phosphatase along with a panel of pluripotency state markers and was able to differentiate into the derivatives of all the three germ layers.
