Scientists at Osaka Prefecture University have developed a method for creating induced pluripotent stem cells from canine blood cells, and the technique could bring about advances in regenerative therapies for animals, and the findings might translate to humans, writes lead author Shingo Hatoya. The scientists used a specific viral vector that doesn't integrate into the host genome and can be automatically silenced, and they grew the iPSCs in a medium that enhanced pluripotency, Hatoya writes.
