Human embryonic stem cell (hESC) biology is expected to revolutionize the future of medicine by the provision of cell-based therapies for the treatment of a variety of deliberatig diseases. The tremendous versatility of hESCs has reinforced this hope. To understand the biology of these my sterious cells and attempt to differentiate them into desirable tissues, bona fide hESCs that maintain their stability with time are required for research and clinical application. This review discusses the… CONTINUE READING
