Pdx-1-independent differentiation of mouse embryonic stem cells into insulin-expressing cells.

Abstract

To investigate whether insulin-producing cells obtained from ES cells via the nestin-positive cell-mediated method are of the pancreatic lineage, we established a pdx-1 knockout ES cell line and analyzed its differentiation into insulin-producing cells. As a result, pdx-1 knockout ES cell expressed insulin 2 gene at the final differentiated cells. Thus, our… (More)
