Pluripotent stem cell (PSC) research is an expanding field that has the potential to change the way human diseases are studied and treated. See More The ability to differentiate embryonic stem (ES) cells and induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells to specific downstream cell types opens up new avenues for drug development and regenerative medicine. From generation of iPS cells to maintenance, differentiation, characterization, and cryopreservation of ES and iPS cells, see how you can "Maximize Your Pluripotential" with the most complete, defined system for ES and iPS cell culture. For help with your hPSC workflow decision making, use our infographics to find the right reagents for you.

Interspecies Organogenesis Generates Autologous Functional Islets
Researchers injected mouse pluripotent stem cells (PSCs) into Pdx-1-deficient rat blastocysts, they generated rat-sized pancreata composed of mouse-PSC-derived cells. Islets subsequently prepared from these mouse–rat chimeric pancreata were transplanted into mice with streptozotocin-induced diabetes. The transplanted islets successfully normalized and maintained host blood glucose levels for over 370 days in the absence of immunosuppression.ESC & iPSC News Volume 12.04, February 1, 2017.
