28 in Nature Communications. The researchers began by using a type of skin cell referred to as dermal fibroblasts. They added three genes to be able to transform them into induced pluripotent stem cells . These stem cells have the ability to transform into other cells found throughout the physical body. Specifically, the iPSCs in this study were converted to epithelial cells, which will make up connective, nerve and muscle tissue. These cells are located at the bulb-like ends of hair follicles normally. The team could accomplish this by controlling the cells’ growth time, and could actually turn 25 % of the iPSCs into epithelial stem cells in about 18 days.Funding will be announced in spring 2010.
