      DescriptionSimplicon® Human iPS Cell Line
      Alternate Names
      • Human iPSC Line
      • Human Pluripotent Stem Cell Line
      Background InformationThe discovery that somatic cells could revert back to pluripotent like cells in 2006 by Shinya Yamanaka created an entirely new area of stem cell biology. Human iPS cells removed the ethical concerns associated with embryonic stem cells and allowed scientists to model human diseases that were previously impossible to model such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Autism. Human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), have the capacity to give rise to differentiated progeny representative of all three germ layers (ectoderm, endoderm, and mesoderm). The ability to expand pluripotent cells in vitro and subject them to direct differentiation to produce specific cell types is crucial for the development of potential cell-based therapies and disease-in-a-dish cell models for research.

      Simplicon® RNA Reprogramming Technology is a next generation non-integrating reprogramming system that uses a single synthetic self-replicating RNA strand engineered to mimic cellular RNA to generate human iPS cells. The single RNA strand contains the four reprogramming factors, OCT-4, KLF-4, SOX-2 and GLIS1 (OKSG) and enables extremely efficient reprogramming using a single transfection step without any viral intermediates or host genome integration. The Simplicon® human iPS cell line was generated by reprogramming human foreskin fibrobalsts (SCC058) using the Simplicon® RNA Reprogramming Kit (SCR550). The cell line is integration-free, highly characterized and maintains a pluripotent phenotype over multiple passages.
