Chemically defined medium
for generation of human cardiomyocytes from induced pluripotent stem (iPS)
A chemically defined medium
for differentiating human iPS cells into cardiomyocytes could be useful for
generating cell-replacement therapies for cardiac repair. The culture medium
consists of RPMI 1640, l-ascorbic
acid 2-phosphate and rice-derived recombinant human albumin. The medium was
able to generate sheets of cardiomyocytes with a yield of up to 100
cardiomyocytes per human iPS cell. The resulting human cardiomyocytes were
not fully differentiated but still showed cardiomyocyte-like
electrophysiological behaviors and expressed multiple cardiomyocyte markers.
Next steps could include optimizing the culture medium and associated
protocols to further mature the cardiomyocytes.
