Cover legend

Co-expression of C-peptide (green) with insulin (red) in islet-like clusters generated from mouse embryonic stem cells. The differentiation strategy includes pancreatic differentiation induction of ES-derived multi-lineage progenitor cells without selection for nestin-positive cells. For more details, see articles by Blyszczuk et al. pp. 1095-1104 and Kania et al. 1061-1064 in the present issue.
