|ENDODERMAL CELL MASS, AND METHOD FOR PRODUCING ANY ONE OF THREE PRIMARY GERM LAYER CELL MASS FROM PLURIPOTENT CELLS
The present invention provides a pluripotent stem cell-derived endodermal cell mass in which the content of undifferentiated cells is reduced and which contains endodermal cells capable of producing somatic cells that are suitable for a cell therapy preparation. The endodermal cell mass according to this invention is characterized by the relative expression levels of certain genes to that of OAZ1 (ornithine decarboxylase antizyme 1) gene.
