Conversion of Human Gastric Epithelial Cells to Multipotent Endodermal Progenitors using Defined Small Molecules

Bhaskar Chanda Stem Cell Wang et al. show that a set of defined small molecules plus mesenchymal feeder cells can covert human gastric epithelial cells into induced endodermal progenitors with multilineage differentiation capacity. As gastric epithelial cells are readily available after surgical/biopsy procedures, these cells could provide an accessible source for various applications.
