BACKGROUND The use of human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) in research is increasing and hESCs hold the promise for many biological, clinical and toxicological studies. Human ESCs are expected to be chromosomally stable since karyotypic changes represent a pitfall for potential future applications. Recently, several studies have analysed the genomic stability(More)
BACKGROUND We previously reported the in vitro spontaneous transformation of human mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) generating a population with tumorigenic potential, that we termed transformed mesenchymal cells (TMC). METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS Here we have characterized the molecular changes associated with TMC generation. Using microarrays techniques(More)
