Induced pluripotent stem cells ipscs
Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (iPSCs)

  • iPSCs are pluripotent cells generated from somatic cells through the forced expression of reprogramming factors controlling self-renewal and pluripotency.

  • iPSCs can be generated from patient biopsies.

  • iPSCs can be differentiated into any cell type of the body.


Ipsc technology
iPSC Technology

  • Can be used to study basic cell biology and mechanisms driving cellular differentiation.

  • Presents the ideal alternative approach to using embryonic stem cells (ESCs) in disease modeling and therapeutic applications.

  • Allows researchers to sidestep ethical and immunological limitations associated with the generation and use of ESCs.

Advantages and limitations of ipscs
Advantages and Limitations of iPSCs

  • iPSCs can acquire genetic mutations during reprogramming or during in vitro culture.

  • Undifferentiated iPSCs, if transferred to a patient, could form tumors (teratomas).

  • More stringent protocols must be developed and standardized for the generation, maintenance, characterization, and differentiation of iPSCs before they can be considered a viable option for clinical use.

  • iPSCs can be generated from skin biopsies.

  • iPSCs can be cultured indefinitely in vitro, providing a renewable source of cells.

  • iPSCs can be differentiated into any cell type of the body.

  • Cells differentiated from iPSCs can be used for disease modeling and drug screening.

  • Disease-causing mutations can be corrected in iPSCs

  • iPSC-derived cells, such as keratinocytes, can be used in cell therapy.

  • Generation of iPSCs involves the use of adult cells, bypassing ethical concerns associated with using ESCs.
