Isolation and Characterization of Stem Cells Sub Populationwithin the Human Fetal Liver
Human fetal liver is the potential source of both hematopoietic and non-hematopoietic stem cells which can be identified using phenotypic markers. Isolation of homogenous populations of hepatic progenitor cells and their sub-populations is an essential prerequisite for investigating specific markers and appropriate cell types for their possible clinical applications. Several studies have demonstrated the presence of a variety of stem cell populations within the fetal liver. The present study was undertaken to identify specialized cell populations, their valuable growth potential and bi-potential differentiation capability derived from human fetal liver using CD133.
