Not All Embryonic Stem Cell Lines Are Created Equal

Not All Embryonic Stem Cell Lines Are Created Equal Monday, 06 August 2007 When it comes to generating neurons, researchers have found that not all embryonic stem (ES) cell lines are equal. In comparing neurons generated from two NIH-approved embryonic stem cell lines, scientists have uncovered significant differences in the mature, functioning neurons generated from each line. The discovery implies that culture conditions during ES cell generation – which have yet to be identified – can influence the developmental properties of ES cells. Research published in the August 06, 2007, issue of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Thomas C.
