Stem Cell Culture under Physiologic Oxygen tension
Wednesday, July 24, 2013
Embryonic stem cells are derived from the inner cell mass (ICM) of early stage blastocysts and they are exposed in vivo to the equivalent of 2% to 5% atmospheric oxygen concentrations and it has been proven that exposure to open atmospheric oxygen tension (21%) impairs blastocyst development in several species....
