POU5F1 and NANOG play important roles in the maintenance of embryonic stem cell pluripotency. Recently, we isolated cat embryonic stem (ES)-like cells from cat blastocysts generated in vivo. In an effort to identify genetic markers for the characterization of cat ES-like cells, we have determined the coding sequences (CDSs) of cat POU5F1 (cPOU5F1) and NANOG… CONTINUE READING
