Long-term proliferation of mouse primordial germ cells in culture
PRIMORDIAL germ cells (PGCs) are first identifiable as a population of about eight alkaline phosphatase-positive cells in the 7.0 days postcoitum mouse embryo1. During the next 6 days of developmentExpand

HIF-dependent antitumorigenic effect of antioxidants in vivo.
The antitumorigenic activity of antioxidants has been presumed to arise from their ability to squelch DNA damage and genomic instability mediated by reactive oxygen species (ROS). Here, we reportExpand

Efficient human iPS cell derivation by a non-integrating plasmid from blood cells with unique epigenetic and gene expression signatures
To identify accessible and permissive human cell types for efficient derivation of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), we investigated epigenetic and gene expression signatures of multipleExpand

A stem cell–like chromatin pattern may predispose tumor suppressor genes to DNA hypermethylation and heritable silencing
Adult cancers may derive from stem or early progenitor cells. Epigenetic modulation of gene expression is essential for normal function of these early cells but is highly abnormal in cancers, whichExpand

Synaptic dysregulation in a human iPS cell model of mental disorders
Dysregulated neurodevelopment with altered structural and functional connectivity is believed to underlie many neuropsychiatric disorders, and ‘a disease of synapses’ is the major hypothesis for theExpand

Combinatorial Signals of Activin/Nodal and Bone Morphogenic Protein Regulate the Early Lineage Segregation of Human Embryonic Stem Cells*S⃞
Cell fate commitment of pre-implantation blastocysts, to either the inner cell mass or trophoblast, is the first step in cell lineage segregation of the developing human embryo. However, theExpand

Human Adult Marrow Cells Support Prolonged Expansion of Human Embryonic Stem Cells in Culture
Prolonged propagation of human embryonic stem (hES) cells is currently achieved by coculture with primary mouse embryonic fibroblasts (MEFs) serving as feeder cells. Unlike mouse ES cells, addingExpand

Defining the Role of Wnt/β‐Catenin Signaling in the Survival, Proliferation, and Self‐Renewal of Human Embryonic Stem Cells
We used a panel of human and mouse fibroblasts with various abilities for supporting the prolonged growth of human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) to elucidate growth factors required for hESC survival,Expand

Human-induced pluripotent stem cells from blood cells of healthy donors and patients with acquired blood disorders.
Human induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells derived from somatic cells hold promise to develop novel patient-specific cell therapies and research models for inherited and acquired diseases. We andExpand

Site-specific gene correction of a point mutation in human iPS cells derived from an adult patient with sickle cell disease.
Human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) bearing monogenic mutations have great potential for modeling disease phenotypes, screening candidate drugs, and cell replacement therapy provided theExpand
