SnapShot: Growing Organoids From Stem Cells

Toshiro Sato et al. Cell. .

Tissue stem cells require unique niche microenvironments. In the presence of specific combinations of niche factors, mouse and human epithelial tissues from stomach, small intestine, colon, pancreas duct, and liver bile duct efficiently form stereotypic organoids. The platform of epitheloid organoids can also be employed for in vitro generation of digestive tissue from human pluripotent stem cells. Organoids hold great promise for basic and translational research.
