iPS

A body cell that has been reprogrammed to behave like an embryonic stem cell, that is, to be able to differentiate into cells that could regenerate and repair many different kinds of damaged or diseased tissues.

Human iPS Cells: Human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs, cat# SC102A-1) were generated by transducing genetically unmodified human fibroblasts with viruses individually encoding the four human transcription factors (Oct4, Sox2, Klf4, and c-Myc) that have been shown to induce the reprogramming of somatic cells to a pluripotent state.

Pluripotent cells fall into two groups, embryonic stem cells and induced pluripotent stem cells. While embryonic stem cells come from human embryos, an ethically thorny issue, induced pluripotent stem cells come from adult cells that are manipulated to be able to transform into any cell type.
