Abstract

Global gene-expression analyses of human embryonic stem cells confirm the involvement of some known genes in stem-cell function and identify some new candidate regulators of stem-cell growth. Support remains elusive, however, for the concept of 'stemness'--a pattern of expression of genes that is common to all stem cells.
