iPSCs: induced back to controversy

Cell Stem Cell. 2011 Apr 8;8(4):347-8. doi: 10.1016/j.stem.2011.03.003.


Several recent reports (Mayshar et al., 2010; Laurent et al., 2011; Lister et al., 2011; Gore et al., 2011; Hussein et al., 2011) uncover genetic and epigenetic alterations in induced pluripotent stem cells, stimulating debate about their future. However, will these important findings really impact what we hope to gain?
