The discovery was made by using forced expression of four transcription factors Oct4, Sox2, Klf4, and c-Myc. These results came from the research group of Shinya Yamanaka, and hence these factors responsible for reprogramming induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC) are called the Yamanaka factors [1].
