(Ivanhoe Newswire) "“ New scientific findings are crucial for infertility research and treatment and for a more comprehensive understanding of germ cell biology in general. Researchers have now found a way to turn mouse embryonic stem cells into sperm. Investigators coaxed mouse embryonic stem cells into sperm precursors, called primordial germ cells (PGCs), and discovered that these cells were able to produce healthy sperm. The researchers say that such in vitro reconstitution of germ...
