Product Overview

Third Generation RNA Reprogramming Technology for Cellular Reprogramming of Fibroblasts, Blood, and Urine

REPROCELL's latest evolution in the Stemgent RNA reprogramming technolgy combines non-modified RNA and microRNA technology to provide a kit for stem cell researchers with a new level of versatility, simplicity and time savings, enabling cellular reprogramming of human fibroblasts, and cells from blood and now urine for difficult to reprogram patient samples.

Key Benefits

  • Flexible technology generates high-quality human iPS cell lines from multiple target cell types
    Out-of-the-box reprogramming of cells from skin (fibroblasts), blood (endothelial progenitor cells; EPCs) and urine (urine-derived progenitor cells; UPCs)
  • High efficiency, non-integrating reprogramming
    StemRNA-NM requires a few as four additional reagents. Double stranded microRNAs enhance reprogramming efficiency, prividing iPS cells with high efficiency (up to 4% from fibroblasts, up to 3% from EPCs, up to 0.5% from UPCs).
  • Time-saving protocol delivers faster results facilitating higher throughput
    Colonies ready to pick in 10-14 days from fibroblasts and 12-16 days from EPCs or UPCs.  No screening needed, saving an additional 2-10 weeks (3-10+ passages) needed for vector clearance with other technologies.

Kit Contents

  • OKSMNL NM-RNA (Part No. 05-0040), 30 µg, 1 vial
  • EKB NM-RNA (Part No. 05-0041), 22 µg, 1 vial
  • NM-microRNAs (Part No. 05-0042), 15 µg, 1 vial

Storage and Stability

  1. Store all three kit components at or below -70 °C.
  2. Kit components are stable for a minimum of 3 months from date of receipt when stored as directed.

Quality Control

The individual mRNAs are tested for size and integrity. The StemRNA™-SR Reprogramming Kit is functionally validated for successful RNA-based reprogramming of adult fibroblasts and human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs). Complete reprogramming of iPS cell colonies is confirmed by expression of pluripotency markers and appropriate colony morphology. All components of the kit are sterile and have tested negative for mycoplasma.
