Yokahoma, Japan: REPROCELL announce the launch of StemRNA™ Entero: human iPSC-derived intestinal epithelial cells.
StemRNA™ Entero cells are intestinal epithelial cells derived from human iPSCs. This model was developed using advanced technologies established by Professor Shoen Kume (The Tokyo Institute of Technology) and REPROCELL, Inc. StemRNA™ Entero cells closely mimic the gene expression of intestinal epithelial cells; for example, they express high levels of the CYP3A4 gene – a key enzyme for metabolism – compared to Caco2 cells, an intestinal model system widely used to measure the absorption and metabolism of novel therapeutics. StemRNA™ Entero cells are designed for use as a more clinically relevant alternative to Caco2 cells in drug development.
