Multiple hematopoietic lineages develop from embryonic stem (ES) cells in culture.


When embryonic stem cells are cultured directly in semisolid media (methyl cellulose), they proliferate and differentiate to generate colonies known as embryoid bodies (EBs). These EBs consist of differentiated cells from a number of lineages including those of the hematopoietic system. Following 10 days of culture in the presence of 10% fetal calf serum… (More)
