Cross-section of a 3-dimensional human pancreatic colony grown in a semisolid medium containing 1% methylcellulose and 5% Matrigel for 21 days. Cells in colony were stained with epithelial marker E-cadherin (Ecad; green) and endocrine progenitor marker Neurogenin 3 (Ngn3; red). This image confirms the detection of endocrine progenitor cells in colonies derived from pancreatic progenitor-like cells, which have the potential to differentiate into hormone-producing cells such as insulin-producing β-cells.
