Induction of Inner Ear Hair Cells from Mouse Embryonic Stem Cells In Vitro.

Abstract

Inner ear hair cells (HCs) function as the primary transducers for perception of sound and balance, while a defect in their formation or their loss results in sensory deficits. In mammals, once HCs are lost, they are not regenerated, and thus, various medical strategies have been proposed for their reproduction. Although embryonic stem (ES) cells are a… (More)
