Chromosome Analysis of ES Cells and iPS Cells
Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS Cells) are the cells that possesses pluripotency and self-renewal capability and are able to sustain the cells. It was produced for the first time in the world by the group of Professor Shinya Yamanaka, Kyoto University in 2006. Human embryonic stem (hES) and iPS cells are thought to hold great potential for improving our understanding and thus for developing treatment for many diseases. In addition, prospects are high regarding the use of these cells for successful cell transplantation. However, one concern has been that adaptation to culture conditions and maintenance in culture of any cell type will change the population, which might induce chromosomal changes. It is thus important to monitor a culture for the any chromosomal abnormalities, particulaly in stem cells intend for therapeutic use.
A number of techniques can be used to characterize stem cells: karyotyping, fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), array comparative genomic hybridization (aCGH), SNP analysis, and epigenetic profiling. Creative Bioarray can offer the karyotyping analysis and Multicolor FISH analysis for you.
