  • In vivo immunological function of mast cells derived from embryonic stem cells: An approach for the rapid analysis of even embryonic lethal mutations in adult mice in vivo PROCEEDINGS OF THE NATIONAL ACADEMY OF SCIENCES OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA Tsai, M., Wedemeyer, J., Ganiatsas, S., Tam, S. Y., Zon, L. I., GALLI, S. J. 2000; 97 (16): 9186-9190


    An important goal of tissue engineering is to achieve reconstitution of specific functionally active cell types by transplantation of differentiated cell populations derived from normal or genetically altered embryonic stem cells in vitro. We find that mast cells derived in vitro from wild-type or genetically manipulated embryonic stem cells can survive and orchestrate immunologically specific IgE-dependent reactions after transplantation into mast cell-deficient Kit(W)/Kit(W-v) mice. These findings define a unique approach for analyzing the effects of mutations of any genes that are expressed in mast cells, including embryonic lethal mutations, in vitro or in vivo.
