The image is an artistic interpretation of the ability of miRNAs to convert somatic cells to induced pluripotent stem cells. In this image, the blue arrow represents miRNA. The green round cells represent pluripotent stem cells expressing EGFP protein. The stop watch indicates the miRNA is an efficient way to covert somatic cells to stem cells.
