Iiyama argues the low PH acid-bath is his lactobacillus

A Japanese lactobacillus plantarum (read below) researcher, Ichiro Iiyama, has argued in his blog below (in Japanese) that the Kunimasa Ohta’s experiment (read below) at Kumamoto University, Japan used his lactobacillus plantarum for realizing ‘Multipotent cell’ as well as ‘STAP cell’.

Lactic Acid Bacteria Covert Human Fibroblasts to Multipotent Cells

Moreover Iiyama not only has criticized Ohta is hiding its lactobacillus origin, which used in his experiment but he has hinted at Haruko Obokata who disclose the method for STAP cell maybe used his lactobacillus plantarum that Ohta gave it to RIKEN.

Well, if Iiyama would be saying truth, the low PH acid-bath, used in the experiment of STAP cell might be lactobacillus plantarum.
