Replying to: K. Ko et al. 465, 10.1038/nature09089 (2010)Ko et al. challenge our description of human adult germline stem cells (haGSCs), indicating that we have instead cultured testis fibroblasts. However, they do not follow the experimental procedures we describe and so fail to reproduce our findings.

    Recent studies have shown that amniotic membrane tissue is a rich source of stem cells in humans. In clinical applications, the amniotic membrane tissue had therapeutic effects on wound healing and corneal surface reconstruction. Here, we successfully isolated and identified multipotent stem...

    The measurement of the elastic properties of cells is widely used as an indicator for cellular changes during differentiation, upon drug treatment, or resulting from the interaction with the supporting matrix. Elasticity is routinely quantified by indenting the cell with a probe of an AFM while...
