Biology of Avian Viruses

Differentiation of Chicken Embryonic Stem cells (CESc) toward the ectodermic lineage: at day 30 post plating in differentiating conditions cell monolayers are stained with antibodies to cytokeratin (red) and occludin (green), thus enabling the visualization of a cuboidal epithelium, typical for chicken keratinocytes in culture. © INRAE, Vautherot J-F, Couteaudier M

Team leader: Caroline DENESVRE
