  • Human embryonic stem cells originate from the human preimplantation embryo. The derivation of the first human embryonic stem cells was reported in 1998. Since then we have learnt a great deal about how to isolate and culture these cells. Additionally, their stem cell phenotype and differentiation competence have been determined. Although it is expected that many basic biological properties, such as self‐renewal and cell specification, are evolutionary conserved, at least from the mouse, we lack… CONTINUE READING
