Scientists have discovered a new type of mouse embryonic stem cell that is the closest counterpart yet to human embryonic stem cells.

The cells are expected to serve as an improved model for human ES cells in studies of regeneration, disease pathology and basic stem cell biology.

The findings, reported on-line June 27 in Nature, are the result of a collaborative effort among scientists at the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), the National Cancer Institute (NCI)
