Overview

TeSR™-E8™ is a feeder-free, animal component-free culture medium for human embryonic stem (ES) cells and human induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells. It is based on the E8 formulation developed by the laboratory of Dr. James Thomson (University of Wisconsin-Madison), the lead research group behind the design of mTeSR™1, the most widely published feeder-free culture medium for pluripotent stem cells.

Like mTeSR™1, TeSR™-E8™ medium is made with the highest level of quality and care. It contains only the essential components required for maintenance of ES and iPS cells, providing a simpler medium for the culture of pluripotent stem cells. TeSR™-E8™ can be used with Corning® Matrigel® hESC-qualified matrix, or, for a completely defined xeno-free system, Vitronectin XF™.

Comprehensive Cell Surface Protein Profiling Identifies Specific Markers of Human Naive and Primed Pluripotent States.

Collier AJ et al.

Abstract

Human pluripotent stem cells (PSCs) exist in naive and primed states and provide important models to investigate the earliest stages of human development. Naive cells can be obtained through primed-to-naive resetting, but there are no reliable methods to prospectively isolate unmodified naive cells during this process. Here we report comprehensive profiling of cell surface proteins by flow cytometry in naive and primed human PSCs. Several naive-specific, but not primed-specific, proteins were also expressed by pluripotent cells in the human preimplantation embryo. The upregulation of naive-specific cell surface proteins during primed-to-naive resetting enabled the isolation and characterization of live naive cells and intermediate cell populations. This analysis revealed distinct transcriptional and X chromosome inactivation changes associated with the early and late stages of naive cell formation. Thus, identification of state-specific proteins provides a robust set of molecular markers to define the human PSC state and allows new insights into the molecular events leading to naive cell resetting.

Peripheral blood derived induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) from a female with familial hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.

S. B. Ross et al.

Abstract

Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) were generated from peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) obtained from a 62-year-old female with familial hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). PBMCs were reprogrammed to a pluripotent state following transfection with non-integrative episomal vectors carrying reprogramming factors OCT4, SOX2, LIN28, KLF4 and L-MYC. iPSCs were shown to express pluripotency markers, possess trilineage differentiation potential, carry rare variants identified in DNA isolated directly from the patient's whole blood, have a normal karyotype and no longer carry episomal vectors for reprogramming. This line is a useful resource for identifying unknown genetic causes of HCM.
