Characterization of a novel mesenchymal stem cell line derived from human embryonic stem cells

A novel nonimmortalized fibroblast-like cell line SC6-MSC was derived from SC6 human embryonic stem cells (ESCs). Numerical and structural karyotypic analyses of these cells have revealed that it is hypodiploid: 45, X0. SC6-MSC average population doubling time was 26.0 ± 0.4 h at the 8th passage and 82.0 ± 9.2 h at the 18th passage. The growth curves showed… CONTINUE READING
