What is ES Cell Based Gene Overexpression?

... as I know, ES Cells are usually pluripotent stem cells. They are derived from the inner cell mass of a blastocyst. ES Cells have the ability to differentiate into any cell type and by their ability to propagate. Therefore, ES cell based overgene expression can be understood as the expriment ...

Do hESC actively produce telomerase?

... hIPS don't naturally create telomerase, is this true? And do hESC produce it indefinitely so they won't hit the Hayflick limit ever until they differentiate? Thanks

An Overview of Embryonic Stem Cells

... and since then ES have been shown to contribute to all cell lineages. In vitro, murine ES cells were found able to propagate indefinitely in the undifferentiated state while still conserve the capacity to differentiate to all mature somatic phenotypes. The initial isolation of murine ES cell lines ...

Re: MEG-01 cell line cultivation Problem!!!

... in media with some attached cells. I did not notice an obvious in growth until today. This is the first time I work with MEG 01. How could I differentiate If my cells are dying or this is normal.

Gene Upregulation/Increased Expression in HMG-CoA Reductase

So some context, I haven't taken genetics. However, in a class the other day a professor tried to differentiate the two and left me pretty confused. From my understanding, increased gene expression will result in an increase in the protein product that a gene is coding for. ...
