Cardiomyocyte differentiation of certain clones of murine induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS) was estimated. iPS were obtained due to reprogramming of murine embryonic fibroblasts with transposon-based Sleeping beauty plasmids as sene delivery systems. Differentiation was performed in suspension culture and in attached to tissue-culture plates embryoid bodies (EBs). Ascorbic acid was applied as inductor. According to the obtained results, the differentiation was tenfold more effective in attached EBs. Ascorbic acid stimulated the generation of cardiomiocytes.

Keywords: induced pluripotent stem cells, efficiency of differentiation,cardiomyocytes.
