The heart forming region of early chick embryo is an alternative source of embryonic stem cells.


In early chick embryo, the precardiac cells reside within distinct groups of mesodermal cells known as presumptive heart forming regions (HFRs). HFRs are located on the lateral sides of the Hensens node. In an effort to study fate of HFRs in isolation, HFRs were excised from early gastrulating chick embryos and cultured in vitro. A very small proportion of… (More)
