(A) Western blot showing the expression of Mi-2, HDAC1&2 and Mbd2&3 in MEFs, iPSCs and mESCs. (B-D) MEFs infected with Oct4/Sox2/Klf4/c-Myc (OSKM) in the presence of different Mbd3-specific RNAs were cultured in mESC medium and assayed for reprogramming 16 days after infection. (B) Left: Average numbers of AP+ and Oct4-GFP+ clones from 1.5×104 MEFs. Data are from three independent experiments; error bars represent standard deviation. Right: FACS analyses showing the percentage of Oct4-GFP positive cells. (C) Representative experiments showing differential interference contrast (DIC) and fluorescent images of MEFs, scale bars = 300 μm. (D) RT-PCR analysis of mESC marker genes. (E-F) Characterization of iPSCs derived from MEFs expressing OSKM and shMbd3. (E) AP staining and immunofluorescence of mES marker genes (SSEA-1 and Nanog). (F) Immunofluorescence showing embryoid body (EB)-mediated differentiation of iPSCs into ectoderm, mesoderm and endoderm using antibodies against Nestin, SM-actin and ARF. Scale bars = 100 μm.
