 理化学研究所は5日、新たな万能細胞「STAP細胞(刺激惹起<じゃっき>性多能性獲得細胞)」の詳細な作製手順を英科学誌ネイチャーの姉妹誌「ネイチャー・プロトコル・エクスチェンジ(電子版)」に公表すると発表した。公表時間は同日午後3時。

 STAP細胞は、理研など日米研究チームが1月末に作製に成功したとネイチャーで論文発表したが、インターネット上で国内外の研究者から「実験を再現できない」との報告が続いていた。

 研究チームは論文で、生後間もないマウスのリンパ球を弱い酸性の溶液に30分浸し、iPS細胞などと同様の培養液で1週間培養することで、体内のあらゆる細胞に変われる能力を持つSTAP細胞ができたと報告。作成方法が非常に簡単なことも、注目を集める一因になった。

 この論文に対しては、再現性の問題に加え、一部の画像などに不自然な点があるとの指摘が寄せられ、理研とネイチャーがそれぞれ調査を進めており、理研は「結果が出た時点で速やかに公表する」としている。理研は調査結果に先行して作製手順を公開することによって、結論に影響はないとの見方を改めて示そうとしたとみられる。【八田浩輔】

理化学研究所は隠蔽する道を選んだ。あり得ない選択だ。
小保方論文でSTAP細胞から作成したと書いていたキメラマウスを、STAP細胞が万能性を有することの証拠物件として提示しなかったことで、一層理化学研究所に対する国内外の不信が高まるだろう。

末尾のコメントを訂正。

公表された「詳細な作成手順」とは、今現在、不正論文の疑いで調査対象下にある小保方が、論文でSTAP細胞を作製したというやり方の詳細を「ノウハウ」として出してきたものであり、理研の調査委員会が発表したものではない。

若山教授は今でも小保方と一緒のときはSTAP細胞からキメラマウスを作成できたと主張しているが、小保方がいない場所で再現できた者は一人もない。

この「ノウハウ」公開で再現できなかった場合は、小保方らはやり方が悪いと言って逃げることができる。

Abstract
Abstract• References• Author information
Perfecting tissue engineering and cell sheet transplantation is an important step toward realizing regenerative medicine and is a growing area of research. Before being applied to clinical settings, it is important that these approaches are evaluated in vivo. Here we provide a detailed protocol for handling thin cell sheets, for a simple and highly reproducible subcutaneous transplantation of cell sheets into mice, and for the histological examination of regenerated tissues. Various aspects of transplants can be assessed, such as maintenance, differentiation and proliferation. An emphasis is placed on surgical precision and reproducibility. The resulting consistency between surgeries helps minimize artifacts from surgical variation and therefore enables researchers to not only observe and compare the interactions between host tissues but also to compare transplants among different host animals. A single transplantation can be carried out within ~10 min.

Introduction
Stimulus-triggered acquisition of pluripotency (STAP) is a cellular reprogramming
phenomenon that was recently reported in two papers (Obokata, Nature, 2014a,b). In
this reprogramming process, upon strong external stimuli, neonatal somatic cells are
converted into cells that express pluripotency-related genes, such as Oct3/4, and acquire
the ability to differentiate into derivatives of all three germ layers in vitro and in vivo.
These cells, termed STAP cells, can contribute to chimeric fetuses after blastocyst
injection. Moreover, in the blastocyst injection assay, injected STAP cells are also
found in extra-embryonic tissues, such as placenta.
STAP cells derived from neonatal somatic cells are thus fully reprogrammed
to as state of pluripotency. In the conditions for the establishment of STAP cells, their
proliferative capacity is quite limited, distinct from that of embryonic stem cells (ESCs).
STAP cells can be further converted into two types of proliferative cell lines: STAP
stem cells and FGF4-induced stem cells (FI stem cells). STAP stem cells, which are
converted from STAP cells in ACTH-containing medium (see Procedure), lose the
ability to contribute to extra-embryonic tissues. FI stem cells, which are generated from
STAP cells in FGF4-containing medium, in contrast retain the capacity to contribute to
both embryonic and extra-embryonic lineages in blastocyst injection assay, although
their embryonic contribution is relatively low.
The STAP phenomenon induced by external stimuli, thus potentially sheds
new light on our understanding of pluripotency and differentiation in mammalian cells.
This unforeseen phenomenon can be triggered in neonatal hematopoietic cells, for
instance, by transient exposure to low-pH solution. Despite its seeming simplicity, this
procedure requires special care in cell handling and culture conditions, as well as in the
choice of the starting cell population. The delivery of the optimal level of sublethal
stress to cells is essential to the process of STAP cell induction. From our experience,
STAP conversion is reproducibly seen with culture conditions in which most cells
survive for one day after low-pH treatment, and in which up to 80% of the initial cell
number subsequently die at around days 2–3. Control of the pH of the solution is not the
only key factor; the delayed onset of sublethal stress is also critically important. This
biological context can also be affected by many other factors. For example, somatic cell
preparation and cell handling before and after the exposure to stress must be done with
care, as additional damage to the cells may alter the level of stress, causing excessive 3
cell death or insufficient triggering. The types of cells used for STAP conversion are
also critical, and the use of cells from other sources (e.g., the use of cultured fibroblasts
after passaging) may also result a failure to achieve STAP conversion. We have
reproducibly observed STAP cell conversion when proper procedures are followed in
the correct sequence.
To facilitate the broad testing and use of this technique, we are now preparing
a full protocol article with step-by-step instructions. However, as the preparation,
submission and publication of a full manuscript takes a significant amount of time, we
would like to share a number of technical tips for STAP cell conversion culture (and
related experiments) in this Protocol Exchange. We hope that these technical tips may
answer many questions frequently asked about the experimental details. Tissue collection and low-pH treatment
1. To isolate CD45+
haematopoietic cells, spleens were excised from 1-week-old
Oct4-gfp mice (unless specified otherwise), minced by scissors, and mechanically
dissociated using a Pasteur pipette.

IMPORTANT
(i) Adherent cells should be dissociated into single cells, either mechanically
or enzymatically (by trypsin or collagenase). For the tissues described in Fig.
3a (Obokata et al. Nature, 2014a), muscle, adipose tissue and fibroblasts
were enzymatically dissociated, whereas others were mechanically
dissociated.

(ii) Primary cells should be used. We have found that it is difficult to
reprogram mouse embryonic fibroblasts (MEF) that have been expanded in
vitro, while fresh MEF are competent.

(iii) For the experiments reported, we used a Oct-3/4-EGFP transgenic mouse
line (Ohbo et al, Dev Biol, 2003; Yoshimizu et al, Dev Growth Differ, 1999),
which is maintained by the RIKEN Bioresource Center as GOF18-GFP line11
transgenic mouse (B6;B6D2-Tg(GOF18/EGFP)11/Rbrc). Homozygotes of the
transgene were used for the live imaging to obtain the enhanced signal.

(iv) Cells from mice older than one week showed very poor reprogramming
efficiency under the current protocol. Cells from male animals showed higher
efficiency than those from female.

2. Dissociated spleen cells were suspended with PBS and strained through a cell strainer
(BD Biosciences 352340).

3. After centrifuging at 1,000 rpm for 5 min, collected cells were re-suspended in
DMEM medium and added to the same volume of lympholyte (Cedarlane), and then
centrifuged at 1,000 g for 20 min.
IMPORTANT
(i) The purity of the starting cells is important for achieving STAP conversion.
For lymphocytes, contamination with red blood cells may inhibit the
reprogramming event. When using adherent cells, the presence of
extracellular matrix may interfere with reprogramming.

(ii) Alternatively, red blood cells may be removed by suspension of the cell
pellet in 1.8 ml of H2O (Sigma W3500). After 30 seconds, add 0.2 ml of 10×
PBS (Gibco 70011-044), followed by 3 ml of 1× PBS (Gibco 10010-023), and
strain the cell suspension through a cell strainer.

4. The lymphocyte layer was isolated and stained with CD45 antibody (Abcam
ab25603). CD45+
cells were sorted by FACS Aria (BD Biosciences).

IMPORTANT
(i) FACS sorting can be an important step for the confirmation of cell purity,
but can affect both cell viability and reprogramming efficiency. Skipping this
step may increase reprograming efficiency, although this may result in a
reduction in confidence in cell identity.

5. After cell sorting, 1 × 106
CD45+
cells were treated with 500  µl of low-pH HBSS
solution (titrated to pH 5.7 by HCl) for 25 min at 37°C, and then centrifuged at
1,000 rpm at room temperature for 5 min.

IMPORTANT
(i) The buffering action of HBSS is weak, so carry-over of the solution may
affect pH. Please adjust pH to 5.7 in cell suspension by the following method.
First, suspend the cell pellet with 494 µl of HBSS pre-chilled at 4°C, then add
6 µl of diluted HCl (10 µl of 35% HCl in 590 µl of HBSS) to adjust to a final
pH of 5.7. Please confirm the final pH in a pilot experiment, and optimize the
volume of HCl added, as necessary. Alternatively, suspend the cell pellet in
HBSS-pH 5.4 pre-chilled at 4°C.
(ii) The HBSS we used is Ca2
+/Mg2
+ free (Gibco 14170-112). (iii) Incubate the cells suspended in HBSS in a CO2 incubator(iv) Cell viability is a critical parameter in this step. Under optimal conditions,
massive cell death is observed at two days after plating, as shown in Figure 1d
(Obokata et al. Nature, 2014a).
(v) If you find massive cell death at one day after plating, it may be
ameliorated by shortening the incubation period with low-pH HBSS solution
to 15 min.

6. After the supernatant (low-pH solution) was removed, precipitated cells were
re-suspended and plated onto non-adhesive culture plates (typically, 1×105
cells/ml) in
DMEM/F12 medium supplemented with 1,000 U LIF (Sigma) and 2% B27
(Invitrogen).

IMPORTANT
(i) The use of non-adhesive culture plates is recommended, as the formation
of cell clusters is an important step for reprogramming, and the adhesive
surface may inhibit cell movement needed to form clusters.
(ii) Cell density is critical, and depends on cell viability. Density should be
maintained at 1×105
~1×106
cells per cm2
of culture surface.
(iii) B27 (Invitrogen 17504-044) may show variation between batches. Please
check the quality by N2B27-2iLIF culture of ES cells.

7. Cell cluster formation was more sensitive to plating cell density than to the
percentage of Oct3/4-GFP+
cells. The number of surviving cells was sensitive to the age
of donor mice, and was low under the treatment conditions described above when adult
spleens were used.

IMPORTANT
(i) The donor mouse should be 1-week old or younger. Reprogramming
efficiency is dramatically reduced using cells from older animals.
(ii) STAP cells are derived from clusters of multiple cells; they are not
monoclonal.

8. The addition of LIF during days 2–7 was essential for generating Oct3/4-GFP+
STAP
cell clusters on day 7, as shown in Extended Data Fig. 1f (Obokata et al. Nature,
2014a). Even in the absence of LIF, Oct3/4-GFP+
cells (most of which showed dim
signals) appeared transiently in low-pH-treated CD45+
cells during days 2–5 of culture,
but subsequently disappeared, suggesting that there is a LIF-independent early phase,
whereas the subsequent phase is LIF-dependent.

IMPORTANT
(i) Since LIF is essential for the late step of reprogramming, the
reprogramming event may depend on the genetic background. We mainly
used 129, C57BL6, or their F1 strains, as all of these genetic backgrounds are
associated with high responsiveness to LIF.
(ii) The GFP signal is weaker than that of ES cells carrying the same reporter
because of the smaller cell volume of STAP cell than ES cell as found in
Figure 1g (Obokata et al. Nature, 2014a).


STAP stem-cell conversion culture
1. To establish STAP stem-cell lines, STAP cell clusters were transferred to
ACTH-containing medium on MEF feeder cells (several clusters, up to a dozen
clusters, per well of 96-well plates).

IMPORTANT
(i) ACTH (1-24) is available from American Peptide and other companies.
We used ACTH synthesized by Kurabo on consignment. The composition of
this medium is GMEM, 15% Knockout Serum ReplacementTM (KSR,
Invitrogen), 1 × non-essential amino acids (NEAA), 1 × Sodium Pyruvate,
10-4
M 2-mercaptoethanol, 1000 U/ml LIF, and 10 µM ACTH (Ogawa et al,
Genes Cells, 2004). The STAP cell cluster was isolated, dissected into small
pieces as in the case of injection into blastocysts as shown in Figure 4a
(Obokata et al. Nature, 2014a), and seeded on mouse embryonic fibroblast feeder cells in the ACTH medium.
(ii) ACTH-containing medium was purchased from DS Pharma Biomedical
(Osaka, Japan) as StemMedium@.

2. After 4–7 days of culture, the cells were subjected to a first passage using a
conventional trypsin method, and the suspended cells were plated in ESC
maintenance medium containing 20% FBS.

IMPORTANT
(i) ESC maintenance medium consists of KnockoutTM DMEM (Life
Technologies), 20% FBS, 1 × NEAA, 1 × Glutamine, 1 × Nucleosides, 10-4
M
2-mercaptoethanol, and 1000 U/ml LIF.
(ii) FBS lots should be confirmed for suitability for use in the culture of
mouse ES cells.
(iii) We have established multiple STAP stem cell lines from STAP cells
derived from CD45+
haematopoietic cells. Of eight clones examined, none
contained the rearranged TCR allele, suggesting the possibility of negative
cell-type-dependent bias (including maturation of the cell of origin) for STAP
cells to give rise to STAP stem cells in the conversion process. This may be
relevant to the fact that STAP cell conversion was less efficient when
non-neonatal cells were used as somatic cells of origin in the current protocol.

3. Subsequent passaging was performed at a split ratio of 1:10 every second day until
reaching subconfluency. We tested the following three different genetic backgrounds of
mice for STAP stem-cell establishment from STAP cell clusters, and observed
reproducible establishment: C57BL/6 carrying Oct4-gfp (29 of 29), 129/Sv carrying
Rosa26-gfp (2 of 2), and 129/Sv × C57BL/6 carrying cag-gfp (12 of 16). STAP stem
cells with all these genetic backgrounds showed chimaera-forming activity.

FI stem cell conversion culture
1. STAP cell clusters were transferred to Fgf4-containing trophoblast stem-cell
medium (Tanaka et al, Science, 1998) on MEF feeder cells in 96-well plates
(Obokata, Nature, 2014b).
IMPORTANT
(i) TS medium consists of RPMI 1640 with 20% FBS, 1 mM Sodium
Pyruvate, 100 µM 2-mercaptoethanol, 2 mM L-glutamine, 25 ng/ml of
recombinant FGF4, and 1 µg/ml of heparin.
(ii) Different lots of FBS may results in significant differences in the
behavior of cultured cells.

2. In most cases (40 of 50 experiments), colonies grew in 10–50% of wells in 96-well
plates. In a minority of cases (10 of 50 experiments), no colony growth was
observed and/or only fibroblast-like cells appeared.

IMPORTANT
(i) The cells in proliferative colonies also appear similar to fibroblasts,
but gradually change morphology, coming to resemble epithelial cells.


3. The cells were subjected to the first passage during days 7–10 using a conventional
trypsin method. Subsequent passages were performed at a split ratio of 1:4 every
third day before they reached subconfluency.

IMPORTANT
(i) The cells must not be dissociated completely. Partial dissociation is
optimal to maintain viability and self-renewal, as seen in the case of
embryo-derived trophoblast stem cells.

理化学研究所が詳細な作製手順を公表して、海外の研究者がどう出るか、結果待ちではないでしょうか?
以前にもコメント入れたとおり、「理化研が公表した、或いは投稿した、或いはハーバードと共同で特許出願した詳細な作製手順をやってみても再現できない」と言う事は、「再現できないと言ったその人自身が、できない、つまりまだ実現できるレベルまで開発が進んでいない」事を認める事になるからです。
従ってそう言われたくないライバルは、自分では「再現できない」とは言わず、捨て駒の研究者や匿名投稿者、関係のない第三者などを使って「これでは再現できない」と言わせる、或いは言うのを待っている、と言う可能性は、(個人的には)あると思います。
無論、真実がどうなのかはわかりません。
