A comparison of protocols used to generate insulin-producing cell clusters from mouse embryonic stem cells.

Abstract

Embryonic stem cells (ESCs) have the capacity to generate a panoply of tissue types and may therefore provide an alternative source of tissue in regenerative medicine to treat potentially debilitating conditions like Type 1 diabetes mellitus. However, the ability of mouse ESCs to generate insulin-producing cell clusters (IPCCs) remains highly contentious… (More)
