E-MTAB-1274 - High-resolution methylation profiling of glioblastoma neural stem cells and reprogrammed derivatives
Released on 15 March 2013, last updated on 3 May 2014
Glioblastoma-derived neural stem (GNS) cells were reprogrammed to induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells by transgenic expression of OCT4 and KLF4. Genome-wide DNA methylation status was profiled at 485,000 loci to assess epigenetic erasure and restoration due to reprogramming and redifferentiation to the neural stem (NS) cell state.
