iPS cells obtained by various routes

Reprogramming of adult somatic cells to pluripotent cells iPS cells can be achievedby various routes. The first of these was proposed by Yamanaka, who used four reprogramming factors, but there are other possible mechanisms that are reviewed in a recent article (NatureReviews Molecular CellBiology, published online 11, December, 2014).The aforementioned studies offer an extensive analysis of the molecular changes that occur during the reprogramming process, which will certainly allow it to be more efficiently controlled.
