It will have broad applications in cell biology if one of egg cell extracts has the roles to promote cell proliferation and reprogramming. It will provide a new method for easier reprogramming somatic cells and promote cell proliferation. We found chicken egg-white extracts have roles to promote cell proliferation and reprogramming. The different ingredients were then assessed for cell proliferation activity and somatic cell reprogramming. Chicken egg-white extract ingredients that were less than 3 kDa (LT3K) promoted cell proliferation. Those ingredients that were greater than 3 kDa (GT3K) promoted the increased expression of pluripotency factors in somatic cells and promote telomeres growth in 293T cells. Chicken egg-whites can be separated into ingredients of LT3K, which act to promote cell proliferation, and GT3K, which can be used to promote somatic cell reprogramming.
