Reprogramming of DPSC to Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells
Generating a pluripotent cell in vitro by rewinding the internal clock of any somatic cell to an embryonic state and then forwarding its conversion into the desired differentiated cell fate represents a rational and ongoing approach in regenerative medicine (Yildirim 2012). There are available human tissues with no ethical or surgical concern, such as fat, blood, biopsy specimens, skin, plugged hair, and extracted teeth (Aasen et al. 2008; Sun et al. 2009; Ye et al. 2009; Yan et al. 2010).
