Genes required to maintain pluripotency in human embryonic stem (hES) cells are largely unknown, with the exception of OCT-4, a homolog of mouse Oct-4, which is critical for the establishment of the embryonic inner cell mass and the generation of totipotent mouse embryonic stem (mES) cell lines. In the current study, we identified two genes with expression similar to OCT-4, in that they are largely restricted to pluripotent hES cells, premeiotic germ lineage cells, and testicular germ cell… CONTINUE READING
