Public Summary:
In this study we report a small molecule cocktail that enables reprogramming of human primary somatic cells to iPSCs with exogenous expression of only OCT4. In addition, mechanistic studies revealed that modulation of cell metabolism from mitochondrial oxidation to glycolysis plays an important role in reprogramming.
