Distinct sets of developmentally regulated genes that are expressed by human oocytes and human embryonic stem cells


We obtained, for the first time, a large amount of information on gene expression of hGVO as compared with hESC. These data, from a unique research material-human oocytes, can now be used to understand the molecular mechanisms of early human development.
