Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) are novel stem cells derived from adult mouse and human tissues by reprogramming. Elucidation of mechanisms and exploration of efficient methods for their differentiation to functional cardiomyocytes are essential for developing cardiac cell models and future regenerative therapies. We previously established a novel(More)
To engineer a stem cell genome, we developed a technology for targeted elimination of chromosomes from mouse embryonic stem (ES)-somatic hybrid cells. Here we demonstrate the use of a universal chromosome elimination cassette (CEC) for elimination of a single embryonic stem cell (ESC)-derived chromosome 11 or 12, and also both copies of chromosome 6, which(More)
Cardiomyocytes (CMs) derived from human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) or human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) are functionally heterogeneous, display insufficient biological efficacy and generally possess the electrophysiological properties seen in fetal CMs. However, a homogenous population of hESC/hiPSC-CMs, with properties similar to those of(More)
