Journal Highlights

Establishment of New Embryonic Stem Cell lines Embryonic stem (ES) cells are pluripotent cells derived from the inner cell mass of blastocysts. These cells are appropriate for creation of animal models of human genetic diseases, the study of gene function in vivo and differentiation into specific types as potential therapeutic agents for several human diseases. We describe here the production of new ES cell lines from blastocysts recovered from the C57BL/6 and BALB/c mouse strains by changing in concentration of Leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF) and primary culture conditions. The established cell lines were analyzed by simple karyotype, C-banding, Alkaline...
