General description

Dermal Fibroblasts are responsible for producing the extracellular matrix forming the connective tissue of the skin, and play a crucial role during wound healing. HDF provide an excellent model system to study many aspects of cell physiology, and have been utilized in dozens of research publications, particularly those related to skin biology and reprogramming/induced pluripotency studies. HDF were used to create, along with human synovyocytes, induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC) by using the now classic “Yamanaka cocktail” of Oct3/4, Sox2, Klf4, and c-Myc, the discovery for which Dr. Shinya Yamanaka was awarded the Nobel Prize in 2012 (Takanashi, 2007; 2009), and to characterize iPSC general properties, miRNA expression profiles and differentiation potential (Hayashi, 2010; Ohta, 2011; Koyanagi-Aoi, 2013; Noguchi, 20130; Razak, 2013; Sakurai, 2013; Tanaka, 2013; Yanagida, 2013)
