Expression profiles of ES cells, epiblast stem cells, and epiblast stem cells reverted to an ES-like state

ABSTRACT: This analysis compares the expression profiles of CGR8 ES cells, E3 epiblast stem cells, and E3R cells (E3 EpiSCs reverted to an ES-like state). Overall design: All three lines were grown under their respective standard conditions.

Mouse epiblast stem cells (EpiSCs) are cultured with FGF2 and Activin A, like human embryonic stem cells (hESCs), but the action of the associated pathways in EpiSCs has not been well characterized. Here, we show that activation of the Activin pathway promotes self-renewal of EpiSCs via direct activation of Nanog, whereas inhibition of this pathway induces neuroectodermal differentiation, like in hESCs. In contrast, the different roles of FGF signaling appear to be only partially conserved in th  ...[more]
