The promise of human embryonic stem cell (hESC) lines for treating injuries and degenerative diseases, for understanding early human development, for disease modelling and for drug discovery, has brought much excitement to scientific communities as well as to the public. Although all of the lines derived worldwide share the expression of characteristic pluripotency markers, many differences are emerging between lines that may be more associated with the wide range of culture conditions in… Expand
Human embryonic stem cell lines isolation, cultivation, and characterization
TLDR
This report has successfully derived five hESC lines and characterized them by previously established criteria, including expression of specific markers and the capacity to differentiate both in vitro and in vivo, and successfully adapted hESCs to novel cultivation protocols. Expand
The Human Embryonic Stem Cells Transcriptome: How Much Do We Know?
TLDR
Interestingly, significant differences are seen not only between mouse and human ESC transcriptomes but also amongst the hESC studies, reinforcing the utility of transcriptome-based approaches in identifying the molecular basis of pluripotency in hESCs. Expand
Derivation of human embryonic stem cells to study earlydevelopment and genetic disease
TLDR
The development of several methods of embryo manipulation tailored to the morphology of the blastocyst is described here, which resulted in the derivation of seven lines from four di�fferent procedures and provided the tools for subsequent research. Expand
Derivation of novel genetically diverse human embryonic stem cell lines
TLDR
12 new hESC lines at New York University are derived from discarded genetically normal and abnormal embryos using the latest techniques, and a number of characteristics of these hESCs have not been pre... Expand
Transcriptome variations among human embryonic stem cell lines are associated with their differentiation propensity
TLDR
It is found that hESC lines have different gene expression profiles, and these differentially expressed genes (DEGs) are significantly enriched in developmental processes, such as ectodermal, mesodermal and endodermal development. Expand
Derivation of novel genetically diverse human embryonic stem cell lines.
TLDR
12 new hESC lines at New York University are derived from discarded genetically normal and abnormal embryos using the latest techniques, and a number of characteristics of these hESCs have not been previously reported, for example, mutation for alpha thalassemia X-linked mental retardation syndrome, linkage to conditions with a genetic component such as asthma or poor sperm morphology, and novel combinations of ethnic backgrounds.

Derivation of new Brazilian lineages of human embryonic stem cells under physiological oxygen conditions
The development and application of human embryonic stem (hES) cells is an important experimental tool for understanding differentiation and development, and offer a wide range of potentialExpand
Systems biology discoveries using non-human primate pluripotent stem and germ cells: novel gene and genomic imprinting interactions as well as unique expression patterns
TLDR
The mRNAs and novel genes with unique expression and imprinting patterns that were discovered using systems biology approaches with primate pluripotent stem and germ cells are considered. Expand
Comparison of human induced pluripotent and embryonic stem cells: fraternal or identical twins?
TLDR
The recent publication of genome-wide reference “scorecards” for monitoring the quality and utility of 32 human pluripotent stem cell lines is a welcome advance in aiding the ability to predict a cell line’s differentiation propensity in a high-throughput fashion. Expand
Derivation of human embryonic stem cell lines.
TLDR
Methods utilized in the laboratory for hESC derivation are described and two studies conducted in an attempt to improve derivation efficiency and to enable research outcomes to be achieved using fewer embryos are described. Expand

Translational Research: Toward Better Characterization of Human Embryonic Stem Cell Lines
TLDR
Given the numbers of new hESC lines that continue to become available, the lower cost to obtain them, and their diversity and other qualitative advantages, it is likely that many of the new cell lines will be studied, perhaps by different investigators. Expand
How Many Human Embryonic Stem Cell Lines Are Sufficient? A U.S. Perspective
TLDR
The issues of studying existing hESC lines made after August 9, 2001, deriving additional hESS lines, SCNT, and the possibility of generating clones or chimeras of human individuals have raised additional “hot” moral and ethical issues. Expand
Characterization of a New NIH‐Registered Variant Human Embryonic Stem Cell Line, BG01V: A Tool for Human Embryonic Stem Cell Research
TLDR
A comprehensive characterization of the variant hESC line BG01V is described, which was derived from the karyotypically normal, parental hESCs, and employs cytogenetic analysis, short tandem repeat and HLA typing, mitochondrial DNA sequencing, gene expression analysis using quantitative reverse transcription‐polymerase chain reaction and microarray, and immunophenotyping and teratoma formation. Expand
Unique gene expression signatures of independently-derived human embryonic stem cell lines.
TLDR
It is suggested that the observed differences in gene expression between independently-derived hESC lines may reflect inherent differences in the initial culture of each line and/or the underlying genetics of the embryos from which the lines were derived. Expand
Characterization and in vitro differentiation potential of a new human embryonic stem cell line, ReliCell®hES1
TLDR
This is the first report of a well-characterized hES cell line from the Indian subcontinent and upon examination of the in vitro differentiation potential, ReliCell®hES1 was found to be capable of giving rise to dopaminergic neurons, cardiomyocytes, pancreatic islets, and hepatocyte-like cells belonging to ectoderm, mesoderm and endoderm lineages, respectively.

The derivation and characterization of a new hESC line, ReliCellhES1, which is the first report of a well-characterized hES cell line from the Indian subcontinent and is found to be capable of giving rise to dopaminergic neurons, cardiomyocytes, pancreatic islets, and hepatocyte-like cells belonging to ectoderm, mesoderm and endoderm lineages.

Comparative transcriptional profiling of two human embryonic stem cell lines
TLDR
A stringent direct comparison between data sets obtained from two human ESCs are reported in order to obtain a list of genes that are enriched in ESCs and this work found 133 genes overlapped between the three pluripotent populations. Expand
Human embryonic stem cell stability
TLDR
Although hESC lines appear stable in their expression of cytokine markers, expression of telomerase, ability to differentiate, and maintenance of a stable karyotype, several other aspects of stability have not yet been addressed, including mitochondrial sequencing, methylation patterns, and fine resolution cytogenetic analysis.

The production and directed differentiation of human embryonic stem cells.
TLDR
These hESC lines are an important resource for functional genomics, drug screening, and, perhaps eventually, cell and gene therapy, and the prospects for use in regenerative medicine are significant. Expand
Efficient derivation of new human embryonic stem cell lines.
TLDR
Improved culture techniques for hES cells should make them a good source for diverse applications in regenerative medicine, but further investigation is needed of their basic biology. Expand
