Abstract

BLIMP1 (PRDM1) and VASA (DDX4) play pivotal roles in the development of the germ cell linage. Importantly, these genes are specifically expressed in germ cells; BLIMP1 in primordial germ cells (PGCs) to early-stage gonocytes, and VASA in migration-stage PGCs to mature gametes. The high reproductive efficiency of common marmosets (marmosets; Callithrix jacchus) makes them advantageous for use in germ cell research. We herein report the generation of a male marmoset embryonic stem cell (ESC) line harboring BLIMP1 and DDX4 double reporters. This ESC line will be a useful tool for investigating male gametogenesis in non-human primates.
