Efficient Detection and Purification of Cell Populations Using Synthetic MicroRNA Switches

Bhaskar Chanda Stem Cell Miki et al. develop synthetic miRNA switches for isolating cell populations that are otherwise difficult to purify. Several miRNA-responsive switches precisely and efficiently isolate human pluripotent stem cell (hPSC)-derived cardiomyocytes, and miRNA switches can be programmed for purification of various cell types including hPSC-derived endothelial cells, hepatocytes, and insulin-producing cells.
