Summary: TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian researchers in collaboration with their Canadian colleagues managed to create early sperm cells, called primordial germ cells
(PGCs), from the skin of individuals, even infertile people.
Towards the use of primordial germ cells

The factor has a variety of effects on different cell types in vitro, inhibiting the differentiation of embryonic stem cells and promoting the survival and/or proliferation of primitive hematopoietic precursors and primordial germ cells
(2007), the migration of the primordial germ cells
starts between the 2nd and 3rd day of incubation, and from the 5th day begins testicular morphogenesis and differentiation of the primordial germ cells
