iPSC Lines, Human, Normal
Applied StemCell offers normal human iPSCs reprogrammed from healthy human tissues (cord blood, fibroblasts, PBMCs) using footprint-free methods. All induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) lines were derived using morphological selection criteria, and without the use of fluorescent marker or drug selection. The cells express pluripotency markers OCT4, SOX2, SSEA4, and others, and demonstrate strong endogenous alkaline phosphatase activity. Our normal human iPSCs can be used for disease modeling, genome editing service, neural lineage differentiation, and neurotoxicity screening applications.
Differentiation to Neural Lineage
Figure 1. Neural stem cells (NSC) differentiated from control human iPSC ASE-9109 express NSC markers: SOX1 (red) and NESTIN (green). DAPI (blue): nuclear counterstain.
Pluripotency Marker Analysis
Figure 2. Expression of pluripotency markers. ASC 9209 iPS cell line expresses common iPSC biomarkers (OCT4, SOX2, SSEA4, TRA-1-60, and TRA-1-81). The corresponding DAPI staining is below each marker staining image. All images were taken at 10x magnification.
The male iPSC ASE-9109 was generated from fibroblasts obtained from a healthy, male neonate using retroviral reprogramming methods.
