  • Patent number: 9238797
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method for production of a cell population containing a pluripotent stem cell, said method comprising a step of treating a somatic cell which has been contacted with nuclear reprogramming factors under nutrient-starved condition, and/or a step of treating the somatic cell with an agent capable of arresting cell cycle. The present invention allows induction and growth of pluripotent stem cells at high frequency, and it also allows production of pluripotent stem cells with high efficiency. The nuclear reprogramming factors to be used may be any selected from the group consisting of OCT4, SOX2, c-MYC, KLF4, NANOG and LIN28.
