Human-Mouse Chimerism Validates Human Stem Cell Pluripotency

Bhaskar Chanda Stem Cell Mascetti and Pedersen show that stage-matching of human pluripotent cells to gastrula-stage mouse embryos overcomes barriers to chimerism, allowing efficient interspecies chimera formation with widespread cell dispersal and tissue-specific differentiation. These findings provide in vivo functional validation of hPSC pluripotency.
