Use of non-modified RNAs for the derivation of clinically-relevant iPS cell lines from human blood, urine and skin cells using GMP-compliant reagents
Stemgent, Lexington, MA, USA; Translational Oncology at Univ Medical Center, Mainz, Germany, BioNTech RNA Pharmaceuticals GmbH, Mainz, Germany; Division of Respiratory Medicine, University of Cambrid

We have developed protocols using our StemRNA-NM Reprogramming Kit for generating iPS cells from skin-derived fibroblasts, blood-derived EPCs, and urine-derived UDCs using GMP-compatible reagents (NutriStem medium, iMatrix-511 recombinant laminin). These protocols generate GMP-compatible stem cells without the use of feeders, conditioned medium, additional small molecules or proteins, or passaging during reprogramming.

Pharmacological Responses in Cultured Human iPSC-Derived Cortical Neurons Using Multi-Electrode Array
(1) Department of Electronics and Intelligent Systems, Tohoku Institute of Technology, Sendai, Miyagi, Japan; (2) Japan Society for the Promotion of Science, Tokyo, Japan; (3) Axol Bioscience Ltd., Ca

The functional network of human induced pluripotent stem cell (hiPSC)-derived neurons is a potentially powerful in vitro model for evaluating disease mechanisms and drug responses. However, the culture time required for the full functional maturation of individual neurons and networks is uncertain. We investigated the development of spontaneous electrophysiological activity and pharmacological responses for over 1 year in culture using multi-electrode arrays (MEAs).

Measurement of Proteasome Inhibition in Live Cells in Molecular Devices Microplate Fluorometers
Molecular Devices

The proteasome is a massive protein complex which can recognize and bind targeted proteins, and inject them into the central core where the proteins are successively degraded into short peptides. Whereas protein synthesis is well-understood after decades of study, major advances in our knowledge of protein degradation have occurred only in the last two decades.
Sample Reformatting and Sample Archiving

Isolation and Characterization of Human Bone-Marrow-Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells
Millipore

Mesenchymal stem cells derived from bone marrow have become an attractive model cell system for the in vitro and in vivo study of disease states such as osteoporosis, obesity, and arthritis. We have isolated mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) from the bone marrow aspirate of a single human donor. Human bone-marrow-derived MSCs express the mesenchymal stem cell markers STR0-1, CD44, and CD90, and do not express hematopoietic markers CD14 and CD19. Human bone-marrow-derived MSCs can be expanded for 18
