We compared bona fide human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) derived from umbilical cord blood (CB) cells and neonatal keratinocytes (K). As a consequence of both incomplete erasure of tissue-specific methylation and aberrant de novo methylation, CB-iPSCs and K-iPSCs were distinct in genome-wide DNA methylation profiles and differentiation potential. Extended passage of some iPSC clones in culture did not improve their epigenetic resemblance to embryonic stem cells, implying that some human iPSCs retain a residual 'epigenetic memory' of their tissue of origin.

    Mouse embryonic stem (ES) cell cultures exhibit heterogeneity and recently are discovered to sporadically enter the 2-cell (2C)-embryo state, critical for ES potency. Zscan4 could mark the sporadic 2C-state of ES cells. However, factors that regulate the Zscan4+/2C state remain to be elucidated....

    Pluripotency is a property of a cell that allows it to develop as any of the cell types of the body. Embryonic stem cells (ESCs) are unique cells in the organism and they have a pluripotent capacity. Induced pluripotent stem cells (IPSCs) is a term that describes somatic cells having a...
