Role of microenvironment in human somatic cell reprogramming to pluripotency

Author£ºDr. Camilla Luni
Date£º3:30 pm, May. 24th (Friday), 2019

Somatic cell reprogramming to pluripotency is the process of conversion of adult cells to a pluripotent embryonic-like state, called induced pluripotency. The discovery that pluripotency could be re-acquired by adult cells by exogenous expression of few transcription factors ...Read more
