Immunostaining of human amniotic epithelial cells: possible use as a transgene carrier in gene therapy for inborn errors of metabolism.

Immunoreactivity of human cultured amniotic epithelial (AE) cells was investigated to evaluate the possible use of these cells as a transgene carrier in gene therapy for inborn errors of metabolism. AE cells were prepared and cultured by the methods described previously. Flow cytometry analysis revealed that these cells did not express any class II antigen… (More)
