ES Cell Qualified FBS
Qualified for Performance: New qRT-PCR Assay
The pluripotency gene tested is a transcription factor that is essential to maintain self-renewal of undifferentiated embryonic stem cells. Studies have shown that the essential function of this gene is to stabilize ES cells in a pluripotent state by maintaining the requisite level of expression of other key transcription factors.
The differentiation gene is involved in various functions of development and differentiation, including trophoblast development and mesoderm formation, which are among the first indications of differentiation.
