Derivation of the clinical grade human embryonic stem cell line RCe021-A (RC-17)


The human embryonic stem cell line RCe021-A (RC-17) was derived under quality assured compliance with UK regulation, European Union Directives and International guidance for tissue procurement, processing and storage according to Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) standards. The cell line was derived from a day 3 embryo voluntarily donated as unsuitable or surplus to fertility requirements following informed consent. RCe021-A (RC-17) shows normal pluripotency marker expression and differentiation to the three germ layers in vitro. It has a normal 46XX female karyotype and microsatellite PCR identity, HLA and blood group typing data are available. Copyright © 2016 The Authors. Published by Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
