    Nanog is a principal pluripotency regulator exhibiting a disperse distribution within stem cell populations in vivo and in vitro. Increasing evidence points to a functional role of Nanog heterogeneity on stem cell fate decisions. Allelic control of Nanog gene expression was reported recently in...

    The pluripotency of human embryonic stem cells (hESC) could have great potential for the development of cell replacement therapies. Previous studies have converged on the finding that OCT4, SOX2, and NANOG serve as key regulators in the maintenance of hESC. However, other signals that regulate...
