Human embryonic stem (ES) cell lines that have the ability to self‐renew and differentiate into specific cell types have been established. The molecular mechanisms for self‐renewal and differentiation, however, are poorly understood. We determined the transcriptome profiles for two proprietary human ES cell lines (HES3 and HES4, ES Cell International), and compared them with murine ES cells and other human tissues. Human and mouse ES cells appear to share a number of expressed gene products… Expand
A review of gene expression profiling of human embryonic stem cell lines and their differentiated progeny.
TLDR
It is expected that global gene expression profiling of hESC may provide an insight into the critical genes involved in maintaining pluripotency of h ESC and genes that are modulated when hESCs differentiate. Expand
Transcriptome variations among human embryonic stem cell lines are associated with their differentiation propensity
TLDR
It is found that hESC lines have different gene expression profiles, and these differentially expressed genes (DEGs) are significantly enriched in developmental processes, such as ectodermal, mesodermal and endodermal development. Expand
Gene Expression Signatures of Seven Individual Human Embryonic Stem Cell Lines
TLDR
Although the overall gene expression profiles of the seven hESC lines were markedly similar, each line also had a subset of differentially expressed genes reflecting their genetic variation and possibly preferential differentiation potential, illustrating the importance of cross‐validation of results between different ESC lines.

TLDR
An important role for the novel HESRG gene in supporting the undifferentiated state or self-renewal of hES cells is suggested. Expand
Transcriptional profiling of mouse and human ES cells identifies SLAIN1, a novel stem cell gene.
We analyzed the transcriptional profiles of differentiating mouse embryonic stem cells (mESCs) and show that embryoid bodies (EBs) sequentially expressed genes associated with the epiblast, primitiveExpand
Transcriptional analysis of early lineage commitment in human embryonic stem cells
TLDR
The data show clearly that genes associated with the pluripotent state are downregulated in a coordinated fashion, and that they are co-expressed with lineage specific transcription factors in a continuum during the early stages of stem cell differentiation. Expand
Temporal gene expression during differentiation of human embryonic stem cells and embryoid bodies.
TLDR
The present study provides a molecular basis for the identity of human ES cells and demonstrates that during their in vitro differentiation they express embryonic specific genes in a stage specific manner. Expand
Transcriptome Profiling of Human and Murine ESCs Identifies Divergent Paths Required to Maintain the Stem Cell State
TLDR
The study reported here underscores the importance of cross‐species comparisons and the versatility and sensitivity of MPSS as a powerful complement to current array technology. Expand
MicroRNA expression pattern of undifferentiated and differentiated human embryonic stem cells.
TLDR
Profiling of the hES cell "miRNA-ome" provides an insight into molecules that control cellular differentiation and maintenance of the pluripotent state, findings that have broad implications in development, homeostasis, and human disease states. Expand
Gene expression profiles in CHA3 and CHA4 human embryonic stem cells and embryoid bodies
TLDR
This study conducted microarraybased differential gene expression analyses using two Korean embryo-derived hESC lines to identify undifferentiated and spontaneously differentiated (human embryoid body, or hEB) status, and revealed that the cell cycle, urea cycle, p53 signaling, and metabolism of amino groups are significantly implicated in the regulation of h ESC differentiation.

DNA microarray analyses of genes regulated during the differentiation of embryonic stem cells
TLDR
Examining the expression of 588 known regulatory genes in D3 ES cells and their RA‐induced differentiated progeny reports that nearly 50% of the regulatory genes are expressed in D2 and/or D3‐differentiated cells. Expand
Preimplantation Human Embryos and Embryonic Stem Cells Show Comparable Expression of Stage‐Specific Embryonic Antigens
TLDR
It is shown that human ES cells are characterized by the expression of the cell‐surface antigens, SSEA3, S SEA4, TRA‐1‐60, and TRA‐ 1‐81, and by the lack of SSEA1, and that inner cell mass cells of the human blastocyst express a similar antigen profile, in contrast to the corresponding Cells of the mouse embryo.

TLDR
These findings establish a central role for Nanog in the transcription factor hierarchy that defines ES cell identity and confirm that Cytokine dependence, multilineage differentiation, and embryo colonization capacity are fully restored upon transgene excision. Expand

To improve the ease, reproducibility, and scalability of hES culture, methods have been developed to propagate the cells in the absence of mouse embryonic cell feeders, and modulation of the expression of many genes has been evaluated using microarray analysis. Expand

Establishment of human embryonic stem cell-transfected clones carrying a marker for undifferentiated cells
TLDR
The ability to efficiently transfect human ES cells will provide the means to study and manipulate these cells for the purpose of basic and applied research and it is proposed that the pluripotent nature of the culture is made evident by the ability of the homogeneous cell population to form EBs.
