Summary: Cell reprogramming has revolutionized the fields of cell and regenerative biology. However, human induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) derivation remains inefficient and variable. Here, we present a protocol that uses human menstrual blood-derived stromal cells (MnSCs), which are susceptible to reprogramming, as a source of somatic cells. We describe an oocyte-based reprogramming combination to generate AOX15-iPSCs that can be used to study different states of pluripotency.For complete details on the use and execution of this protocol, please refer to Lopez-Caraballo et al. (2020).
