The aim of the present work was to investigate possible effects of culture in the Rotary Cell Culture System (RCCS) bioreactor simulating microgravity conditions on early stages of embryo formation using embryoid bodies (EBs) as an experimental model. Expression of five genes was analyzed (Gata-1, Brachyury, Nanog, Oct-4, Hnf-4) in such conditions crucial for cell linage differentiation events occurring in the preimplantation embryo. EBs derived from mice embryonic stem cells (ESCs) were encapsulated in alginate to prevent they aggregation in RCCS.

Abstract

The aim of the present work was to investigate possible effects of culture in the Rotary Cell Culture System (RCCS) bioreactor simulating microgravity conditions on early stages of embryo formation using embryoid bodies (EBs) as an experimental model. Expression of five genes was analyzed (Gata-1, Brachyury, Nanog, Oct-4, Hnf-4) in such conditions crucial for cell linage differentiation events occurring in the preimplantation embryo. EBs derived from mice embryonic stem cells (ESCs) were encapsulated in alginate to prevent they aggregation in RCCS. Results indicate that microgravity seems at least at longer time culture to counteract, the increased EB growth observed in to alginate beads
