Product Overview

Stemgent mRNA Reprogramming Factors Set: hOKSML contains mRNA encoding Oct4, Klf4, Sox2, c-Myc, Lin-28, and nuclear GFP (nGFP). These in vitro transcribed mRNAs incorporate both pseudouridine and 5-methylcytidine-modified nucleotides to minimize the cellular interferon response to single stranded RNA.1,2 Repeated transfection of mRNA encoding Oct4, Klf4, Sox2, c-Myc and Lin-28 has been shown to reprogram human fibroblasts.2 nGFP mRNA is included for use as a positive control for RNA transfection during the cellular reprogramming process.


  • Faster reprogramming, colonies emerge as early as 16 days
  • Stoichiometric control of individual reprogramming factors
  • Eliminates need for backend screening of viral systems
  • Validated protocol using normal and diseased cells

Storage and Stability

Store at or below -70°C. Stable for a minimum of 3 months from date of receipt when stored as directed. Wear gloves when handling this product. Use RNase-free tubes and barrier pipette tips. Thaw on ice. Keep on ice until the sample is removed. Avoid multiple freezing and thawing cycles (<5). Aliquot to experimental quantities.

Quality Control

Proper protein expression and localization have been confirmed by immunocytochemistry for reprogramming factors and by fluorescence microscopy for nGFP.

Recommended Usage

mRNAs should be transfected using a protocol specifically optimized for the cell type used in the experiment.
