The authors generated Strap intestinal epithelial knockout mice by crossing mice containing floxed alleles of Strap with Villin-Cre mice. They used human colon cancer cell lines and human and mouse colon tumor-derived organoids for STRAP knockdown/knockout and overexpression experiments.

The authors reported that MEK1/2 inhibitors could be replaced during maintenance of naive human pluripotency by inhibitors targeting either upstream or downstream kinases. Naive human ESCs maintained under these alternative conditions displayed elevated levels of ERK phosphorylation but retained genome-wide DNA hypomethylation and a transcriptional identity of the pre-implantation epiblast.
