Human embryonic stem (hES) cells are typically derived and serially propagated on inactivated murine embryonic fibroblast (MEF) feeders. The use of MEFs and other components of animal origin in the culture media for hES cell support substantially elevates the risk of contaminating these cell lines with infectious agents of animal origin thereby severely limiting their potential for clinical application. We have previously shown that it is possible to derive and establish new hES cell lines in a… Expand
A novel method for generating xeno-free human feeder cells for human embryonic stem cell culture.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that animal-free (AF) HFFs do not enter senescence within 55 passages when cultured inAnimal-free conditions, thus maintaining hES cell morphology, pluripotency, karyotype stability, and expression of pluripOTency markers. Expand
Propagation of human embryonic stem cells on human feeder cells.
TLDR
Two culture methods, the bulk enzymatic culture protocol and the microdissection "cut and paste" protocol are described, and methods for the characterization of pluripotent undifferentiated hES cells grown on human feeders including cell surface marker staining and real-time polymerase chain reaction. Expand
Expansion of pluripotent human embryonic stem cells on human feeders
TLDR
This study reveals a safe and accessible source for feeders for HES cell research and potential therapeutic applications and successfully adapted and cultured undifferentiated HES cells on three human feeder lines for >30 passages. Expand
Derivation of human embryonic stem cell lines without any exogenous growth factors
TLDR
This is the first study to describe an inexpensive, xeno‐free culture system for the isolation and maintenance of hESCs that does not require bFGF supplementation. Expand
Establishment and Maintenance of Human Embryonic Stem Cell Lines on Human Feeder Cells Derived from Uterine Endometrium under Serum-Free Condition1
TLDR
This study attempted to establish new hES cell lines using human uterine endometrial cells (hUECs) to prevent the risks associated with animal feeder cells and for their eventual application in cell-replacement therapy. Expand
Preparation of autogenic human feeder cells for growth of human embryonic stem cells.
TLDR
This feeder cell system derived from hESC successfully prolongs growth of undifferentiated hESCs and eliminates risk factors and concerns about using xenogeneic or unknown allogeneic feeders. Expand
Naturally immortalised mouse embryonic fibroblast lines support human embryonic stem cell growth.
TLDR
The results contradict a previous paradigm that PMEFs tend to lose their capacity to support proliferation of hESCs with increasing passages, and show that the MEFLU-TB mouse embryonic fibroblast cell line and its conditioned medium have the potential to support the maintenance of h ESC lines. Expand
Derivation and characterization of human embryonic stem cells on human amnion epithelial cells
TLDR
In the present work, inner cell masses were isolated from frozen embryos obtained as donations from couples undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment and four new hESC lines were derived using primary human amnion epithelial cells as feeder cells. Expand
FGF2 secreting human fibroblast feeder cells: A novel culture system for human embryonic stem cells
TLDR
This is the first study reporting a novel hESC culture system which does not warrant FGF2 supplementation, thereby reducing the cost of hESCs cultures. Expand
Defined feeder-free culture system of human embryonic stem cells
TLDR
Three different Miz-hES cell lines were cultured for up to 7 months on human laminin in a novel, feeder layer-free cocktail medium containing growth factors and extracellular matrix molecules and showed normal telomere lengths, karyotypes and developmental potentials in vivo and in vitro. Expand
