• For the first time in a non-mammalian species, induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) have been derived in the quail. This intriguing article demonstrates that human reprogramming factors POU5F1, SOX2, NANOG, LIN28, KLF4 and C-MYC are capable of de-differentiating quail fibroblast cells back to a pluripotent state. These quail iPSCs not only have morphology and immunoreactivity […]
