Abstract
Fetal calf serum (FCS) is conventionally used for animal cell cultures due to its inherent growth promoting activities. However animal welfare issues and stringent requirements for human transplantation studies demand a suitable alternative for FCS. With this view, we have investigated the effects of hUmbilical Cord Serum( hUCBS) and FCS on the viability , proliferation and its differentiation potential to generate islet like cellular aggregates (ICAs) using the human derived Panc-1 cell lines. A comparative analysis of hUCBS and FCS for each parameter demonstrated that hUCBS supplemented media was better for proliferation and differentiation of the Panc-1 cells (stem cells) . The ICAs obtained from hUCBS primed cultures showed a higher yield, increased islet size, and showed an increase for insulin staining compared to FCS. A comparative analysis of hBone Marrow cells (hBMCs) maintained in each of these different serum supplements demonstrated that hUCBS supplemented media better supported proliferation of hBMCs and enhanced adipogenic differentiation protocol than FCS.We suggest that hUCBS can be explored as an alternate serum supplement for FCS, making it more feasible in cell systems of human derived origin as this is xenogenic free and can also find its application for the human transplantation programmes.
