Following on from the emerging importance of the pancreas circadian clock on islet function and the development of type 2 diabetes in rodent models, we aimed to examine circadian gene expression in human islets. The oscillator properties were assessed in intact islets as well as in beta cells. We established a system for long-term bioluminescence recording(More)
BACKGROUND Feeder cells are frequently used for the early-stage of derivation and culture of human embryonic stem cell (hESC) lines. METHODS We established a conditionally immortalized human foreskin fibroblast line that secreted basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF). These cells were used as feeder cells for hESC culture and induced pluripotent stem(More)
Lentiviral vectors are now widely considered one of the safest and most efficient tools for gene delivery and stable gene expression. Even though inducible gene expression cassettes are mandatory for many genetic engineering strategies, most current systems suffer from various issues, such as the requirement of two vectors, which decreases the overall(More)
Lentiviral vectors have evolved over the last decade as powerful, reliable, and safe tools for stable gene transfer in a wide variety of mammalian cells. Contrary to other vectors derived from oncoretroviruses, they allow for stable gene delivery into most nondividing primary cells. In particular, lentivectors (LVs) derived from HIV-1 have gradually evolved(More)
