Undifferentiated human embryonic stem (ES) cells can be cultured indefinitely and yet maintain the potential to form almost every cell in the adult human body. Therefore ES cells provide a model for understanding the differentiation and function of human tissue, offer new strategies for drug discovery and testing, and have the potential to provide new transplantation therapies for the treatment of a wide variety of human diseases. In this article, we describe the origin and properties of human… Expand
COMPONENT SCREENING FOR NOVEL XENO­FREE MEDIUM FOR HUMAN EMBRYONIC STEM CELLS
TLDR
The aim of this study was to test different components with a house-made medium developed for hESC in order to improve the current formulation and the most promising additives proved to be amino acids, thiamine and glutathione. Expand
Potential application for mesenchymal stem cells in the treatment of cardiovascular diseases.
TLDR
Recent research on the use of stem cells for the treatment of cardiovascular and pulmonary diseases and the future application of mesenchymal stem cells in patients with a variety of cardiovascular disorders are focused on. Expand
Novel culture strategy for human stem cell proliferation and neuronal differentiation
TLDR
A novel culture strategy for NT2 neuronal differentiation was developed, allowing drastic improvement in the neuronal differentiation efficiency of NT2 cells, insofar as a fourfold increase was obtained, reducing simultaneously the time needed for the differentiation process. Expand
Protocols for investigating microRNA functions in human neural progenitor cells.
TLDR
Experimental protocols for investigating the endogenous functions of specific miRNAs in the proliferation, survival, and migration of human neural progenitor cells derived from embryonic stem cells are presented. Expand
Pluripotent Stem Cells: Origin, Maintenance and Induction
TLDR
This review focuses on the pluripotent stem cells of mammals, giving special attention to the comparison between mouse and human, and compares in vivo specification and location; surface and intracellular markers; in vitro dependence on growth factors; signal transduction pathways; epigenetic characteristics; and pluripotency genes and functional assays.

Generation of keratinocytes from normal and recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa-induced pluripotent stem cells
TLDR
The studies indicate that autologous iPSCs have the potential to provide a source of cells for regenerative therapies for specific skin diseases and are differentiated into keratinocytes with high efficiency, suggesting that they were fully functional. Expand
Marrow Stromal Mesenchymal Stem Cells
TLDR
This chapter summarizes the origins, isolation, characterization, cell cycle properties, and differentiation potential of bone marrow stromal mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). Expand
Integrating human stem cell expansion and neuronal differentiation in bioreactors
TLDR
The culture systems developed herein are robust and represent one-step-forward towards the development of integrated bioprocesses, bridging stem cell expansion and differentiation in fully controlled bioreactors. Expand
Embryonic Stem Cells: Problems and Possible Solutions
TLDR
It is possible to obtain embryonic stem cells that are genetically identical to the patient's own cells, suitable for stem cell therapy, will generate patient’s own proteins, and escape the danger for “self-attack” and immune rejection. Expand
Clonal derivation and characterization of human embryonic stem cell lines.
TLDR
These results, together with the clonal character of SA002.5 and AS034.1 make these homogenous cell populations very useful for hESC based applications in drug development and toxicity testing, and provides a unique experimental system to study the molecular mechanisms underlying the pathologies associated with trisomy 13.
