Naive Human Pluripotent Cells Feature a Methylation Landscape Devoid of Blastocyst or Germline Memory

Bhaskar Chanda Stem Cell Pastor and colleagues show that reversion of primed hESCs in 5iLAF, or derivation of hESCs in 5iLAF, results in a population of naive cells characterized by loss of the marker SSEA4. However, these cells have a methylation pattern with little resemblance to blastocyst and near total loss of imprinting.
