We report here a magnetically labeled feeder system for mouse embryonic stem/induced pluripotent stem (ES/iPS) cells. Magnetic attraction of feeder cells labeled with magnetite nanoparticles significantly increased ES/iPS colony-forming efficiency. Magnetic labeling of feeder cells also facilitated separation of ES/iPS cells from feeder cells.
Embryoid bodies resemble post-implantation egg-cylinder stage embryos and are used to differentiate embryonic stem cells in vitro. In this study, we enriched mouse vasa homolog-positive germ cells from embryoid bodies after 8d of differentiation using a magnetic separation method with magnetite cationic liposomes.
