Abstract
The discovery of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS) has been proven as a breakthrough since they have significant the advantages over embryonic stem cells in clinical application. Following the discovery of iPS cells, many sources and methods of producing them have emerged. Each method displays different reprogramming efficiency, a key element in both the clinical application of iPS technology and the research of iPS properties. Human iPS cells can be generated from different types of somatic cells, which could be divided into different viscera categories in the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) theory. Interestingly, the reprogramming efficiency of different somatic cells shows a special relationship with the viscera categories to which those cells belong. This review investigates the reprogramming efficiency of human iPS cells from different somatic cells and demonstrates the connection between reprogramming efficiency and TCM viscera theory. Here, the comparison data led to a prediction on the reprogramming efficiency of the somatic cells without being reported. Hopefully, the findings may provide more useful information for iPS cells selection in clinical use and serve as the first step for the construction of a reprogramming efficiency data pool.
