We describe a new, efficient protocol that involves the serial addition of noggin, basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF), retinoic acid, and sonic hedgehog (Shh) for the differentiation of human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSC) to retinal pigmented epithelium (RPE) in a serum- and feeder-free adherent condition. hiPSC-RPE cells exhibited RPE(More)
Major advances in various disciplines of basic sciences including embryology, molecular and cell biology, genetics, and nanotechnology, as well as stem cell biology have opened new horizons for regenerative therapy. The unique characteristics of stem cells prompt a sound understanding for their use in modern regenerative therapies. This review article(More)
Stem cell technology combined with nano-scaffold surfaces provides a new tool for better induction involved in cell lineage differentiations and therefore for central nervous system repair. This study was undertaken to investigate appropriate neural cell-substrate interactions. Neural progenitors (NPs) were established from human embryonic stem cells(More)
