Title
(EN) METHOD FOR PRODUCING CANCER STEM CELLS
Abstract
(EN)

The present invention relates to a method of producing cancer stem cells that comprises culturing a living cell population containing cancer cells in the presence of a gel substance to obtain a living cell population containing cancer stem cells, wherein the gel substance is a material that induces expression of osteopontin in at least a portion of cells contained in the living cell population. Moreover, the present invention relates to an agent for inducing conversion of cancer cells to cancer stem cells that comprises a gel substance that induces expression of osteopontin in at least a portion of the cells contained in a living cell population. The gel substance is a synthetic polymer gel composed of, for example, double network gel, PNaSS gel, PCDME gel, PA gel, RAMPS gel, PDMA gel or PAAc gel. The present invention provides means and a method that enable the preparation of cancer stem cells in a relatively short period of time and at a relatively low culturing cost without requiring expensive equipment.
