But the liberty values putatively at risk in delaying or foregoing embryo and ES cell
research seem less obvious than those implicated in abortion cases, unless one is prepared to argue that federally funded research involving human embryos is immediately necessary to save patients.
As a result of the discussions in Jordan, in January 2014 the country passed a law to control research and therapy using human ES cells
Like the cells of the early embryo, ES cells
can differentiate into any cell type or tissue--a property termed pluripotency.
The four ICM-derived cell clumps from hybrid mice formed ES cell
colonies at the first passage.
Evidence for an in vitro differentiation of ES cells
into the neuronal lineage has been reported (10,11).
The experience of Stem Cell Sciences in standardizing conditions for growing stem cells should help accelerate the evaluation of the various mouse ES cells
for Huntington's disease target validation and drug discovery programs.
can be maintained in culture as undifferentiated cell lines or induced to differentiate into many different lineages (7).
Although the president asserted that "more than sixty" ES cell
lines existed, in truth less than a dozen were available to scientists for the first two years of the policy (the NIH Stem Cell Registry currently lists twenty-two lines).
Such medical applications, which have become the key justification for expanded ES cell
research, are grounded in the prior real definitions that justify study of mammalian development via ES cells
These Japanese advances, combined with Jun Takahashi's suggestion that human cultures of ES cell
differentiation in dopamine neurons will be possible, indicate that more researchers are stepping up to the line: they want to explore the potential of human embryonic stem cells.
Under the Bush administration however, federal funding of all ES cell
research within U.
