AIMS: A variety of human inherited heart diseases affect the normal functions of cardiomyocytes (CMs), endothelial cells (ECs) or smooth muscle cells (SMCs). To study human heart disease and generate cardiac cells for basic and translational research, an efficient strategy is needed for production of cardiac lineages from human stem cells. The present study developed a highly reproducible method that can simultaneously enrich a large number of CMs and cardiac SMCs and ECs from human iPS cells with high purity.Methods and ResultsIn this study, human multipotent cardiovascular progenitor (MCP) cells were generated from human iPS cells, followed by selective differentiation of MCPs into CM, ECs, and SMCs. With further fluorescence activated cell sorting (FACS), all three cardiovascular cells could be each enriched with high purity (>90%). These enriched cardiovascular cells exhibited specific gene expression signatures and normal functions when assayed both in vitro and in vivo. Moreover, CMs purified from iPS cells derived from a patient with Leopard Syndrome, a disease characterized by cardiac hypertrophy, showed the expected upregulated expression of genes associated with cardiac hypertrophy. CONCLUSIONS: Overall, our technical advance provides the means for generating a renewable resource of pure human cardiovascular cells that can be used to dissect the mechanism of human inherited heart disease, and for the future development of drug and cell therapeutics for heart disease.
