Hence, DE cells are likely associated with a decrease in proliferation capacity.
Based on the qPCR data relative to the increase in Klf4 messenger associated with the decrease in the percentage of Ki-67 expression, to maintain viability, and the decline in the messenger for smooth muscle actin (SMA), we can assume that the DE cells have been induced to start an epithelial differentiation.
These qRT-PCR results showed that hiPSCs could be differentiated into DE cells efficiently in vitro.
In our study, these qRT-PCR and immunocytochemical results showed that hiPSCs were differentiated into DE cells efficiently using different differentiation media and feeder layers.
In order to assess the impact of Nanog and Oct4 reexpression on the differentiation process, the expression of definitive endoderm (DE) markers was analyzed in a defined protocol for generation of DE cells. Figure 3(a) shows a remarkable downregulation of Nanog and an increase in Pdx1 expression upon DETA/NO treatment in mESC.
hiPSCs were differentiated into DE cells and expression of SKCa was investigated after 5 days of differentiation.
Thus, the induction of DE cells marks a prerequisite for the entire process of pluripotent stem cell differentiation into, for example, pancreatic or hepatic progenitor cells [54,55].
