RUES1 (NIH Registration number 0012)

Biosafety Level: 2

Shipped: Frozen

Medium & Serum / Propogation / Subculturing / Preservation: See Protocols

Organism: Homo sapiens (human)

Morphology: Spherical colony

Cell Type: Human embryonic stem cell

Requests: To request cells, use the link www.wicell.org/rockefeller to be taken directly to the Rockefeller lines on the WiCell website and complete the order process.

Restrictions: Cannot be used for diagnostic or therapeutic use; for use in teaching and non-commercial research only.

Cytogenetic Analysis: XY

Age: embryo, blastocyst

Comments: RUES1 is a human embryonic stem cell line derived from a de-identified frozen embryo that was originally generated for reproductive purposes and later donated with informed consent for research purposes. The Provider does not have any information that could be used to identify the embryo and/or gamete donors. RUES1 cells are pluripotent and can differentiate to representatives of the three primary germ layers. See RUES1 Derivation Information

References: Recipients are requested to provide notice of publications citing use of this line to the Provider.

Notices and Disclaimers
