Efficient derivation and inducible differentiation of expandable skeletal myogenic cells from human ES and patient-specific iPS cells Vrije Universiteit Brussel
Skeletal muscle is the most abundant human tissue; therefore, an unlimited availability of myogenic cells has applications in regenerative medicine and drug development. Here we detail a protocol to derive myogenic cells from human embryonic stem (ES) and induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells, and we also provide evidence for its extension to human iPS cells cultured without feeder cells. The procedure, which does not require the generation of ...
