We previously reported that transfection of Pax6 gene which regulated early events in eye development into mouse ES cells brought about their differentiation into retinal progenitors. Here, we attempted to establish cloned retinal progenitors which had ability to further differentiate into photoreceptor like cells by transfecting mouse induced pluripotent… CONTINUE READING
