Cellular Dynamics International | Date: 2016-09-07

Provided herein are methods of enriching a retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) cell population derived from stem cells. Such a method may comprise removing contaminating cells through the depletion of CD24 positive cells, CD56 positive cells, and/or CD90 positive cells from a starting population of RPE cells.

Methods and compositions relating to the production of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells) are disclosed. For example, induced pluripotent stem cells may be generated from peripheral blood cells, such as human blood progenitor cells, using episomal reprogramming and feeder-free or xeno-free conditions. In certain embodiments, the invention provides novel methods for improving overall reprogramming efficiency with low number of blood progenitor cells.

Methods and compositions relating to the production of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells) are disclosed. For example, induced pluripotent stem cells may be generated from CD34^(+) hematopoietic cells, such as human CD34^(+) blood progenitor cells, or T cells. Various iPS cell lines are also provided. In certain embodiments, the invention provides novel induced pluripotent stem cells with a genome comprising genetic rearrangement of T cell receptors.


Patent
Cellular Dynamics International | Date: 2015-01-14

The invention generally features methods for providing engineered pluripotent stem cells that can be used to study biological response and pathways, including differentiation and drug effects. For example, these cells are provided comprising two or more exogenous expression cassettes including a selectable or screenable marker under the control of different condition-responsive regulatory elements, such as differentiation-responsive promoters or regulatory element of a receptor, drug target, drug metabolizing enzyme or signaling pathway gene. Also provided are sets of stem cell lines each comprising a different exogenous expression cassette including a selectable or screenable marker under the control of a different condition-responsive regulatory element.


Patent
Cellular Dynamics International | Date: 2016-02-23

Methods for producing engineered induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells are provided comprising introducing a first nucleic acid into somatic cells for integration into their genome and reprogramming the cells to produce engineered iPS cells having the nucleic acid integrated into their genome. For example, in certain aspects the cells are reprogrammed by introduction of a genetic element that expresses one or more reprogramming factor and culturing of the cells under conditions sufficient to produce reprogrammed cells.
