How to Get Pluripotent Stem Cells

  1. Somatic Cell Nuclear Transfer (SCNT)
  • Oncogenic transformation (formation of tumors after using these transcription factors)
  • Inefficient (it takes up to 2 months to get the pluripotent stem cells)
All the different types of cell fusion that lead to cell reprogramming into stem cells


Now, what do I propose we do about the main barriers that stop us from achieving higher efficiency rates during reprogramming? Interesting you ask because I was just about to tell you.
