Human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) are self-renewing pluripotent cells that can differentiate to a wide range of specialized cells and hold great promise as models for human development and disease, as well as for drug discovery and cell-replacement therapies. Group B Coxsackie viruses (CVBs) produce acute myocarditis, pancreatitis, non-septic meningitis(More)
Although BMP4-induced differentiation of glioma stem cells (GSCs) is well recognized, details of the cellular responses triggered by this morphogen are still poorly defined. In this study, we established several GSC-enriched cell lines (GSC-ECLs) from high-grade gliomas. The expansion of these cells as adherent monolayers, and not as floating neurospheres,(More)
Human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) are hypersensitive to genotoxic stress and display lower survival ability relative to their differentiated progeny. Herein, we attempted to investigate the source of this difference by comparing the DNA damage responses triggered by the topoisomerase I inhibitor camptothecin, in hESCs, human induced pluripotent stem cells(More)
