Human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) have been advanced as a potential source of cells for use in cell replacement therapies. The ability to identify hESCs and their differentiated progeny readily in transplantation experiments will facilitate the analysis of hESC potential and function in vivo. We have generated a hESC line designated ‘Envy’, in which robust levels of green fluorescent protein (GFP) are expressed in stem cells and all differentiated progeny.
