    Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) can be generated from somatic cells by ectopic expression of defined transcription factors (TFs). However, the optimal cell type and the easy reprogramming approaches that minimize genetic aberrations of parent cells must be considered before generating the...

    BACKGROUND: Adipose-derived stem cells (ADSCs) are multipotent progenitors that can commit to osteoblast, chondrocyte, adipocyte and several other lineages. The proper utilization of stem cells for clinical application requires an integrated understanding of multiple signal inputs that control...
