Growth Factors for Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell Culturing

Growth Factors for Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell Culturing
Overview
Human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) are an ‘unlimited supply’ for cell therapy due to their unique self-renewal properties and the capacity to be genetically engineered. Furthermore, with the right combination of cytokines and growth factors, iPSCs can be differentiated into various types of immune cells, including T cells, NK cells, and Macrophages. Overall, iPSC-differentiated immune cells are potentially the first step towards developing an allogenic ‘off-the-shelf’ cell therapy product; overcoming one of the critical obstacles that hinders the widespread application of current autologous cell therapies.

iPSC-T Cell

iPSC-T Cell

The classical approach to generate iPSC-derived T cells starts from:

1. Co-culturing of iPSCs derived from healthy donors with murine bone marrow stromal cell line (C3H10T1/2 or OP9) to generate CD34+ hematopoietic progenitor cells.

2. Hematoproietic progenitors are enriched and co-cultured with OP9 cell line overexpressing DLL-1/DLL-4, with additional cytokines to drive T cell differentiation.

iPSC-NK Cell

iPSC-NK Cell

To generate iPSC-derived NK cells:

1. The iPSCs derived from healthy donors are co-cultured with the murine bone marrow stromal cell line M210-B4 for ~20 days to allow for the generation of CD34 + hematopoietic progenitors.

2. CD34 + hematopoietic progenitors are then enriched and co-cultured with a monolayer of murine AFT024 (a fetal liver-derived stromal cell line) or EL08-1D2 stroma cells with defined cytokines for 4 to 5 weeks, eventually generating mature NK cells.

iPSC-Macrophage

iPSC-Macrophage

Formation of iPSC-derived macrophages Mφs requires a more complex methodology:

1. Embryoid body(EBs) formation is the most commonly used method for differentiating iPSC-derived Mφs, utilizing specific modifications such as rotary suspension, microwell approaches, microfluidic hanging drop chips, and others.

2. After formation of iPSC-derived EBs, myeloid Mφs are further induced by supplementation of cytokines, including GM-CSF, M-CSF, IL-3, and IL-4.

Product Features
To support research on iPSC culturing and differentiation, ACROBiosystems has developed a series of high-quality cytokines, including IL-3, IL-7, IL-15, DLL4 and Flt-3L. These products are suitable for iPSCs induction and differentiation culturing to help your cell therapy drug development process.

Transitioning from Premium to GMP

Cytokines are critical raw materials used in cell culturing for cell and gene therapy (CGT) drugs. Usually, in the preclinical stage, both safety and quality for raw materials are not prioritized. In this case, research-use only products can be used. However, when progressing into later drug development stages such as CMC or clinical phases, it is necessary to replace the raw materials with GMP-grade materials to be compliant with regulatory guidelines. In this transitional period, there is a significant amount of energy dedicated to re-evaluating and validating new raw materials.

To ease this transition from the preclinical development into the clinical stage, we offer several grades of cytokines that have been evaluated to be near-identical in bioactivity, along with the documentation required from GMP products. We recommend using our premium-grade raw materials in the early development stage to seamlessly transition to our GMP-grade raw materials when entering CMC or clinical phases and minimize the number of re-evaluation and validation studies performed.
