Abstract:

A current aim in cell and developmental biology is to program cells at will. One way towards converting a given cell type into another one is achieved via a pluripotent stem cell state that resembles that of embryonic stem cells (ESCs). In most cases, somatic cells are pushed into a pluripotent state by the introduction of exogenous factors, mostly transcription factors. Reprogramming of somatic cells into pluripotent stem cells designated as induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) was first described in 2006. Fibroblasts were used and initially required introduction of the virally expressed transcription factor quartet Oct4, Sox2, Klf4, and c-Myc (OSKM). We previously reported that Oct4 alone is sufficient for directly reprogramming adult mouse and human fetal neural stem cells into iPSCs, thus highlighting the crucial role played by Oct4 in the process. As we now show the combination of SKM is sufficient for reprogramming mouse somatic cells into iPSCs. Actually, SKM even activates the pluripotency network in Oct4-knockout fibroblasts. Retroviral silencing requires the simultaneous expression of Sox2 and c-Myc, perhaps accounting for the discrepancy with respect to previous studies that used retroviral vectors to generate iPSCs without Oct4. Reprogramming in the absence of exogenous Oct4 results in iPSCs that are characterized by more faithful gene expression and greatly improved developmental potential. Our data suggests that expression of exogenous Oct4 during reprogramming leads to off-target gene activation, thereby worsening the quality of the generated iPSCs with major implications for further development and application of iPSC technology.

Everybody is very welcome!

On behalf of the Saxon State Ministry of Economics, Labour and Transport, Wirtschaftsförderung Sachsen (WFS) cordially invites you to this year's Life Sciences Forum Saxony. The forum is organized in cooperation with the Biotechnology Center of the TU Dresden (BIOTEC) and the Biotechnology-Biomedical Center of the University of Leipzig (BBZ).

This year, the forum is dedicated to the 20th anniversary of the Biotechnology Offensive Saxony. We invite you, together with Minister President Michael Kretschmer, to take a look at the past and the future of Saxony as a biotechnology location.

Please make a note of the date today. You can register for the forum today at www.standort-sachsen.de/lsfs. The number of participants is limited. Detailed information on the event will be sent to you shortly with a separate invitation.

The forum is organized in cooperation with the Biotechnology Center of the TU Dresden (BIOTEC) and the Biotechnology-Biomedical Center of the University of Leipzig (BBZ).

Speakers and program will follow shortly.
