Why use StemXVivo® Mouse Pluripotent Stem Cell Media to grow mouse pluripotent stem cells?
Maintenance and expansion of mouse embryonic or induced pluripotent stem cells in vitro is a time consuming and sensitive process that, if not optimized, can yield inconsistent growth and cells of varying quality.
Critical to the in vitro culturing of mouse pluripotent stem cells is the use of an optimized media that includes mouse Leukemia Inhibitory Factor (LIF). R&D Systems offers the Human StemXVivo® Mouse Pluripotent Stem Cell Media Kit, which provides a pre-optimized base media and our in-house produced and Quality Control-tested Recombinant Mouse LIF.

Embryonic Stem Cells Grown in Mouse Pluripotent Stem Cell Media Are Capable of Tri-Lineage Differentiation. v6.5 mouse embryonic stem cells were cultured in StemXVivo® Mouse Pluripotent Stem Cell Media. For differentiation, cells were cultured as embryoid bodies for 5 days, plated onto Cultrex® BME-coated plates (R&D Systems, Catalog # 3434-005-02) for an additional 5-10 days. A. Expression of the ectoderm marker, SOX1, was detected in day 10 cells using Goat Anti-SOX1 Affinity Purified Polyclonal Antibody (R&D Systems, Catalog # AF3369) followed by NorthernLights™ (NL)557-conjugated Donkey Anti-Goat Secondary Antibody. B. Expression of the endoderm marker, SOX17, was detected in 10 day cells using Goat Anti-SOX17 Affinity Purified Polyclonal Antibody (R&D Systems, Catalog # AF1924) followed by NL557-conjugated Donkey Anti-Goat Secondary Antibody. C. Expression of the mesoderm marker, Smooth Muscle Actin, was detected in 15 day cells using Mouse Anti-Smooth Muscle Actin Monoclonal Antibody (R&D Systems, Catalog # MAB1420). The nuclei were counterstained with DAPI.
Store the unopened product at -20 to -70 °C. Use a manual defrost freezer and avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles. Do not use past expiration date.
Background: Pluripotent Stem Cells
Embryonic stem (ES) cells are pluripotent stem cells derived from the inner cell mass of pre-implantation embryos. Induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells can be generated by somatic cell reprogramming following the exogenous expression of specific transcription factors (Oct-3/4, KLF4, SOX2, and c-Myc). These cell types are capable of unlimited, undifferentiated proliferation in vitro and still maintain the capacity to differentiate into a wide variety of somatic cells. In this capacity, pluripotent stem cells have widespread clinical potential for the treatments of heart disease, diabetes, spinal cord injury, and a variety of neurodegenerative disorders.
R&D Systems offers a wide range of products to support pluripotent stem cell culture and differentiation. Mouse embryonic fibroblasts may be used to maintain and expand pluripotent stem cells in an undifferentiated state. We also offer defined culture media, which are specifically optimized for use with human or rodent pluripotent stem cells. In addition, R&D Systems offers a variety of products to assess differentiation status and identify specific stem cell types of interest, including panels of marker antibodies, primer pairs, multi-color flow cytometry kits, and specialized verification kits.
