Abstract

In this article, Ito and colleagues delineated the base-resolution methylome of iPSC-derived retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) cell used in the first-in-human trial of autologous transplantation. The methylome closely resembled that of native RPE cell. Intriguingly, it became even closer to its natural counterpart upon xenotransplantation to mouse, demonstrating its plasticity to respond appropriately to the in vivo environment.
