The POU-domain transcription factor SCIP (also known as Tst-1) has been implicated in the development of Schwann cells, the myelinating cells of the peripheral nervous system (PNS). We have investigated the possibility that SCIP also might play a role in the development of oligodendrocytes, the myelinating cells of the central nervous system (CNS). We(More)
The definitive long-term repopulating human hematopoietic stem cell, which seeds the adult blood system, was previously thought to derive from the extra-embryonic yolk sac. However, there is now considerable evidence that in both avian and murine systems, yolk sac hematopoietic cells are largely a transient, embryonic population and the definitive stem(More)
The transforming growth factor-beta-related factor bone morphogenetic protein 4 (BMP4) is expressed in the human embryonic aorta-gonad-mesonephros (AGM) coincident with the emergence of haematopoietic cells and influences postnatal mammalian haematopoietic stem cells in vitro. To investigate the role of BMP4 in mammalian embryonic haematopoiesis, cells were(More)
In the mammal, definitive hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) are first derived from mesodermal cells within a region of the embryonic para-aortic splanchnopleura known as the aorta-gonad-mesonephros (AGM). Within this region, HSCs are thought to arise from hemangioblast precursors located in the ventral wall of the dorsal aorta. However, the factors that(More)
The International Consortium of Stem Cell Networks' (ICSCN) Workshop Towards Clinical Trials Using Stem Cells for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)/Motor Neuron Disease (MND) was held on 24-25 January 2011. Twenty scientific talks addressed aspects of cell derivation and characterization; preclinical research and phased clinical trials involving stem(More)
