Background and aims: Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC) are primary undifferentiated cells that are able to create almost any type of cells in the body. The purpose of the present study was production and transmission of TetO-FUW-OSKM lentiviral vector to human dermal fibroblast cells (HDFs) and investigation the application of this vector. Methods: In this experimental study after isolation and culture of HDF cells, TetO-FUW-OSKM lentiviral vector containing the reprogramming genes (as transfer vector) and PsPAX2 and PMDG2 vectors (as packaging plasmids) were transfected to HEK-293T cell line for virus production. The supernatants of packaging cells were harvested in 48h and 72h after transfection. Then, these viruses were transducted to HDF for reprogramming these cells. Results: The results of this study demonstrated the successful production of TetO-FUW-OSKM lentiviral vector and suitable expression of the transcription factors in HDF cells after transduction. Conclusion: According to these findings lentiviral vectors could be used for gene transmission and reprogramming of adult cells such HDF to generate iPS cells in future studies.
