CiRA starts distribution of two new types of Human iPS Cell

CiRA has started the distribution of two new types of human iPS cell lines to non-profit academic research institutions through RIKEN BioResource center (RIKEN BRC)

A joint research group of Gifu University, RIKEN and HLA Laboratory has established an efficient manner of generating these types of human iPS cells derived from fibroblast. As the episomal plasmid are used to induce 6 factors to fibroblast, these iPS cells are free from genomic integration.

The two iPS cell lines are now available to non-profit organization in Japan for academic research purposes. They will be provided for non-profit institutions overseas.
