ABSTRACT
A review of articles discussing the analysis of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), a new type of stem cells formed by reintroducing embryonic stem cells (ES cells) into mature cells by P.D. Tonge and colleagues and S.M Hussien and colleagues, published in the December 2014 issue, ie presented.

    Stable maintenance of gene regulatory programs is essential for normal function in multicellular organisms. Epigenetic mechanisms, and DNA methylation in particular, are hypothesized to facilitate such maintenance by creating cellular memory that can be written during embryonic development and...
