xenogeneic

 [zen″o-jen-e´ik]
in transplantation biology, denoting individuals or tissues from individuals of different species and hence of disparate cell type. Called also heterogenous and heterologous.

xen·o·ge·ne·ic

(zen'ō-jĕ-nē'ik),
Heterologous, with respect to tissue grafts, especially when donor and recipient belong to widely separated species. Compare: allogeneic, autogenic, isogenic.
Synonym(s): xenogenic (2) , xenogenous (2)
[xeno- + G. -gen, producing]

xenogeneic

(zĕn′ə-jə-nē′ĭk, -nā′-, zē′nə-)
adj.
Derived or obtained from an organism of a different species: xenogeneic tissue graft; xenogeneic antibodies.

xen·o·ge·ne·ic

(zen'ō-jĕ-nē'ik)
Heterologous, with respect to tissue grafts, especially when donor and recipient belong to widely separated species.
Synonym(s): xenogenic (2) , xenogenous (2) .
[xeno- + G. -gen, producing]

xenogeneic

Pertaining to the genetic differences between different species.

Generally, stem cells reside within a special microenvironment or 'niche', which provides factors that regulate the proliferation and differentiation of the stem cell population.23 SSCs expand in the presence of feeder layer cells such as mouse embryonic fibroblast (MEF) cells, Sandos Inbred Mouse (SIM) mouse embryo-derived Thioguanine and Ouabain resistant cells (STO cells) and human embryonic cell- derived fibroblast-like cells (hEFs).24 However, use of xenogeneic orallogeneic feeder cells for culturing human SSCs is associated with risks such as pathogen transmission and viral infection.
