SeV-iPS cells

What is SeV-iPS cell stock?

This is a clinical grade iPS cell line made using Sendai Virus (SeV) vectors※1. We have been using episomal vectors※2 for the establishment of clinical iPS cells. Some of our partners have requested for SeV-iPS cell lines, and we have begun to provide them, believing that by responding to their requests, we will be able to expand our selection of iPS cell lines for clinical use. The SeV-iPS cells are satisfying Japan, European and North American regulations for clinical use, made from peripheral blood of an American donor that has been collected and tested in authorized medical and research institutions in the U.S.,

Sendai virus (SeV) vector

A "vector" in genetics is a biomaterial, usually virus or plasmid (circular DNA), that transduces genes into cells. Some vectors, however, integrate into the cell's genome, risking cytotoxicity and genetic disorders. SeV vectors do not have this concern.

Episomal vector

An episomal vector is a plasmid vector used to introduce genetic material into a cell. As a non-viral vector, it does not integrate into the cell's genome.
