Artificially Induced Oocytes In mice, male embryonic stem cells (ESCs) and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) have been shown to differentiate into primordial germ cell–like cells (PGCLCs) in vitro. Upon transplantation into testes, these PGCLCs can form fully functional sperm. Again working in mice, Hayashi et al. (p. 971, published online 4 October) found that female ESCs and iPSCs can also differentiate into PGCLCs, which, when aggregated in reconstituted ovaries, exhibited epigenetic… Expand
Generation of eggs from mouse embryonic stem cells and induced pluripotent stem cells
TLDR
This method provides an initial step toward reconstitution of the entire process of oogenesis in vitro, which is an integrated process through which an egg acquires the potential for totipotency, a fundamental condition for creating new individuals. Expand
Generation of Mouse Functional Oocytes in Rat by Xeno-Ectopic Transplantation of Primordial Germ Cells1
TLDR
These studies show that rat/mouse female PGCs and PGC-free gonadal cells can develop and reconstruct ovary-like tissue containing functional oocytes in an ectopic xenogenic microenvironment. Expand
Generation of germ cells in vitro in the era of induced pluripotent stem cells
TLDR
These findings illustrate not only that iPSCs are developmentally similar to embryonic stem cells (ESCs), but also that somatic cells from adult tissues can produce gametes in vitro, that is, if they are reprogrammed into iPSC. Expand
Advances in Female Germ Cell Induction from Pluripotent Stem Cells
TLDR
Germ cell differentiation from pluripotent stem cells in vitro can simulate early embryonic development of female germ cells and clarify unresolved issues during the development process and could potentially provide promising applications for female fertility preservation after proper in vitro differentiation. Expand
Aberrant Gene Expression and Sexually Incompatible Genomic Imprinting in Oocytes Derived from XY Mouse Embryonic Stem Cells In Vitro
TLDR
The results suggest that the developmental dysfunction of the ESC-derived FLSs may be attributable to aberrant gene expression and genomic imprinting, possibly associated with uncertain sex determination in culture. Expand
Human Germline Development from Pluripotent Stem Cells in vitro
TLDR
A review of the current status in the field of in vitro germ cell production from pluripotent stem cells is presented and how its usefulness could be extended to clinical applications is discussed. Expand
Gamete derivation from embryonic stem cells, induced pluripotent stem cells or somatic cell nuclear transfer-derived embryonic stem cells: state of the art.
TLDR
Several strategies for deriving gametes from PSCs from mice and primates (human and non-human) and their anticipated strengths, challenges and limitations are considered. Expand
In vitro differentiation of human embryonic stem cells into ovarian follicle-like cells
TLDR
It is reported that human embryonic stem cells can be induced to differentiate into ovarian follicle-like cells (FLCs) in vitro and it is found that two RNA-binding proteins specifically expressed in germ cells, DAZL and BOULE, regulate the exit from pluripotency and entry into meiosis. Expand
Generation of human oogonia from induced pluripotent stem cells in vitro
TLDR
It is shown that hPGCLCs differentiate progressively into oogonia-like cells during a long-term in vitro culture in xenogeneic reconstituted ovaries with mouse embryonic ovarian somatic cells, establishing the germline competence of hPSCs and provide a critical step toward human in vitro gametogenesis. Expand
Generation of Oocytes from Mouse ES/iPS Cells
TLDR
A culture system in which embryonic stem cells and induced pluripotent stem cells differentiate into PGC-like cells (PGCLCs) through an epiblast-like cell population is developed and the differentiation method is introduced. Expand

Generation of Functional Oocytes and Spermatids from Fetal Primordial Germ Cells after Ectopic Transplantation in Adult Mice1
TLDR
The transplanted PGC and gonadal somatic cells constructed testis-like and ovary-like tissues, respectively, under the kidney capsules within 4 wk, demonstrating the remarkable flexibility of PGC development, which can proceed up to the functional gamete stage under spatially and temporally noninnate conditions.

Epigenetic reprogramming in mouse primordial germ cells
TLDR
It is shown that mouse primordial germ cells (PGCs) exhibit dynamic changes in epigenetic modifications between days 10.5 and 12.5 post coitum (dpc), and it is suggested that this is an active demethylation process initiated upon the entry of PGCs into the gonadal anlagen. Expand
Development in vitro of mouse oocytes from primordial follicles.

The results reported here clearly show that complete development of oocytes in vitro from the primordial follicle stage is possible and establish the framework for further studies using oocytes from laboratory animals as model systems for the development of Oocytes from humans as well as from animals of agricultural and zoological importance.

TLDR
Evidence is presented that the homeodomain protein Nanog mediates acquisition of both embryonic and induced pluripotency, and that this function is recapitulated in the culmination of somatic cell reprogramming. Expand
Oogenesis: Maturation of mouse fetal germ cells in vitro
TLDR
This work shows that premeiotic female germ cells derived from mouse fetuses as early as 12.5 days post coitum are able to complete meiosis and genomic imprinting in vitro and that these matured oocytes are highly competent in supporting development to full term after nuclear transfer and in vitro fertilization.

TLDR
It is found that mouse germ cells are connected by intercellular bridges in the ovaries of 11.5 to 17.5 days postcoitum embryos; microtubules and organelles have been observed within these bridges. Expand
