Generation and Characterization of Monkey Embryonic Stem Cells
Nonhuman primate embryonic stem (ES) cells are very important for preclinical research of the medical application of human ES cells. Because primate ES cells show significant differences from mouse ES cells, we have been optimizing protocols for the establishment and maintenance of monkey ES cells. The latest methods for derivation and culture of cynomolgus monkey ES cells are described in detail.
