BACKGROUND To study cell replacement therapy using embryonic stem (ES) cells in mice, avoiding immune rejection and tracing the fate of transplanted cells are important issues. This study was carried out to isolate ES cells ubiquitously expressing enhanced green fluorescent protein (EGFP) and test the survival of these cells in allografts in the cochlea of inbred C57BL/6 mice. METHODS Putative ES cells were isolated from blastocysts collected from C57BL/6-green mice ubiquitously expressing… CONTINUE READING
