|Abstract:||Substrate elasticity is a potent regulator of the cell state. Soft substrates have been shown to promote the homogeneous self-renewal of mouse embryonic stem cells through the down-regulation of cell-matrix tractions. We therefore investigated whether soft substrates promote the reprogramming of somatic cells into induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells. After retroviral infection with five factors, Oct3/4, Klf4, Sox2, Lin28 and Nanog, mouse embryonic fibroblasts (MEFs) were cultured on several artificial substrates of varying elasticity and examined for the expression of pluripotency genes. When MEFs were cultured on soft (|
