Directed differentiation of periocular mesenchyme from human embryonic stem cells

Lovatt M, Yam GH-F, Peh GS, Colman A, Dunn NR, Mehta JS (2018) Directed differentiation of periocular mesenchyme from human embryonic stem cells. Differentiation 99:62-69. doi: 10.1016/j.diff.2017.11.003

Objective: Pluripotent stem cells are attractive sources of cells for regenerative medicine, because large numbers of therapeutically useful cells can be generated. However, a detailed understanding of how to differentiate clinically relevant cell types from stem cells is fundamentally required.

Summary: Identification of cells resembling periocular mesenchyme (POM) cells in the adult cornea, located in a niche between the trabecular meshwork and peripheral endothelium. The generation and expansion of POM is an important step in the generation of a number of cells types that could prove to be clinically useful for a number of diseases of the cornea.

Usage: 1:200 for flow cytometry and immunofluorescence.
