Catalog # 05926
273 USD

Overview

ReproTeSR™ (2-Component) is a complete and xeno-free reprogramming medium developed for generating human induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells from fibroblasts, urine-derived cells, and blood-derived cells such as CD34+ or erythroid precursor cells under feeder-free conditions.

ReproTeSR™ is also available as part of an integrated set of tools that are optimized for reprogramming blood-derived cell types expanded in vitro from peripheral blood, such as CD34+ cells (CD34+ Progenitor Reprogramming Kit, Catalog #05925) or erythroid cells (Erythroid Progenitor Reprogramming Kit, Catalog #05924).
Advantages
• Defined, feeder-free formulation facilitates reproducibly efficient human iPS cell generation
• Rapid emergence of large colonies with high-quality iPS cell-like morphology facilitates identification and subcloning for easily establishing iPS cell lines
• Seamlessly integrates with STEMCELL products prior to reprogramming and after iPS cell generation for maintenance and differentiation

Data and Publications

Data

Figure 1. Blood Cell Reprogramming Efficiencies Are Higher in ReproTeSR™ Medium Compared to in hESC Medium

Efficiency of reprogramming (A) erythroid cells or (B) CD34+ cells using episomal reprogramming vectors is higher in ReproTeSR™ medium compared to in KOSR-containing hESC medium. Data shown are mean /- SEM; erythroid cells, n=4; CD34 cells, n=5.

Figure 2. ReproTeSR™ Efficiently Reprograms Fibroblasts

Dermal fibroblasts were transfected with the ReproRNA™-OKSGM vector and reprogrammed under feeder-dependent (standard KOSR-containing hES cell medium on inactivated mouse embryonic fibroblasts (iMEFs)) or feeder-independent conditions (ReproTeSR™ on Corning® Matrigel®). Fibroblasts (passage 4) were reprogrammed with average efficiencies of 0.10 ± 0.06% (hES cell medium) and 0.20 ± 0.07% (ReproTeSR™). Reprogramming efficiency of fibroblasts with ReproRNA™ and ReproTeSR™ is comparable to that reported with Sendai virus. (Schlaeger TM, et al. (2015) Nat Biotechnol 33(1): 58-63.) (n ≥ 6; Data shown are mean ± SD).

Figure 3. Feeder-Free Reprogramming with ReproRNA™-OKSGM Vector and ReproTeSR™ Generates iPS Cell Colonies with Superior Colony Morphology

Representative images of iPS cell colonies were generated using ReproRNA™‑OKSGM and cultured in (A) standard hES cell medium on irradiated mouse embryonic fibroblasts (iMEFs) or (B) ReproTeSR™ on Corning® Matrigel®. iPS cell colonies derived using ReproTeSR™ exhibit more defined borders, compact morphology, and reduced differentiation as compared to the ES cell medium.
