We report transgenic mouse models in which three or four reprogramming factors are expressed from a single genomic locus using a drug-inducible transgene. Multiple somatic cell types can be directly reprogrammed to generate induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) by culture in doxycycline. Because reprogramming factors are carried on a single polycistronic construct, the mice can be easily maintained, and the transgene can be easily transferred into other genetic backgrounds.
