Pancreatic Beta Cells Derived from Human Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells

Cellartis human induced pluripotent stem (hiPS) cell-derived beta cell kits contain beta cells generated in vitro using a standardized protocol that mimics embryonic development. These cells secrete high amounts of insulin and C-peptide, and they show substantial protein expression of insulin/C-peptide, MAFA, NKX6.1, PDX1, and UCN3. We offer two complete kits, each containing cells that originate from a different donor/HLA type. The kits are ideal for investigating beta cell function, diabetes/disease modeling, and compound screening for insulin secretion and regulation.

Cellartis beta cells have been differentiated from our ChiPSC12 and ChiPSC22 lines of hiPS cells, dissociated into a single-cell suspension, and frozen in vials. Each kit contains beta cells, coating substrate, basal media, and a supplement.

  • Diabetes-relevant HLA type: ChiPSC22-derived beta cells originate from a human donor with a diabetes-susceptible HLA type, HLA-A*02:01 (Marron et al. 2002)
  • Beta cells from ChiPSC22 can be used alone or in combination with beta cells from ChiPSC12, which have an alternate HLA type
  • Cells show protein expression of insulin/C-peptide, MAFA, NKX6.1, PDX1, and UCN3
  • Cells demonstrate insulin and C-peptide secretion
  • Cells were derived with a protocol that mimics embryonic development
  • Cells provide reproducible and biologically relevant data

Donor Information

The tissues used for the reprogramming of somatic cells into hiPSCs are from donors who have signed informed consent which outlines in detail the purpose of the donation and the procedure for processing of the donated tissue. In order to protect the privacy and the confidentiality of the donors, all identifiers associated with the donors have been removed. The donor consent was obtained for commercial use. The donation did not result in any financial gain for the donors.
