Normal, Human Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (hiPSCs)
iPSC Control Lines from Healthy Donors
Applied StemCell offers well-characterized, normal human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC) that have been reprogrammed from healthy human tissues (e.g., cord blood, fibroblasts, PBMCs) using footprint-free methods and Yamanaka factors. All iPSC lines have been carefully selected for morphology of undifferentiated cells, expression of pluripotency markers (OCT4, SOX2, SSEA4, and others), and strong endogenous alkaline phosphatase activity. Our normal human iPSCs have proven genome editing and differentiation capabilities, and are ideal for disease modeling, drug discovery/screening, and neurotoxicity screening applications.
Our “master” iPSC line, ASE-9211 is being used by the NIST genome editing consortium as benchmark material to establish measurements and standards for characterizing genome editing outputs. We have differentiated cell products from ASE-9211, including NSCs, astrocytes, dopa neurons, microglia, myoblasts, HPCs CD34+, NK cells, CD4/CD8 T cells, RPE, photoreceptors, cardiomyocytes, and more.

The male iPSC ASE-9109 was generated from fibroblasts obtained from a healthy, male neonate using retroviral reprogramming methods.
iPSC Differentiation (ASE-9211)
The control iPSC line, ASE-9211 was used to produce natural killer (NK) cells, T cells, and motor neurons using proprietary, integration-free differentiation protocols.
Natural Killer Cell Differentiation
Figure 1. Flow cytometry analysis of ASE-9708 iPSC-derived NK cells for NK cell biomarkers. Cryopreserved NKs, differentiated from Applied StemCell’s control iPSC line, ASE-9211 were recovered in NK culture media. The cells were stained with NK cell markers, CD45 and CD56 at day 2. Left: Isotype control antibodies. Right: CD45/CD56.
T Cell Differentiation
Figure 2. Flow cytometry analysis of ASE-9720 iPSC-derived T cells for T cell biomarkers. The T cells,
differentiated from Applied StemCell’s control iPSC line, ASE-9211, were stained with T cell markers CD4 and
CD8. (Premature T Cells CD4+/CD8+ = 17.71% and Mature T Cells CD8+ = 40.02%) *
*Upon request, the T cells can be purified by FACS or MACS (single positive or double positive). We can also further differentiate the cells to obtain a higher percentage (≥80) of mature CD8+ T cells.
Motor Neuron Differentiation
Figure 3. Immunocytochemical staining for motor neuron marker, CHAT (green) and the neuronal marker, MAP2 (blue) in motor neurons differentiated from control "master" iPSC line, ASE-9211 at 7 days post-thaw. DAPI (blue) was used for nucleus staining.
