Funding Acknowledgements

We would like to thank J. Hendrikx (Sloan-Kettering Institute [SKI] Flow Cytometry Core), A. Viale (SKI Genomics Core laboratory), M. Leversha (Molecular Cytogenetics Core), and E. Tu and M. Tomishima (SKI Stem Cell Facility) for excellent technical support. We further thank the Department of Gynecology (directors: M. Mueller and D. Surbek), University of Bern, Switzerland for providing us with the human fetal tissue. Studies using the NKX2.1::GFP hESC line were supported by grants from NYSTEM (S.A.), the European Commission project NeuroStemcell (L.S.), and the C.V. Starr Foundation (S.A. and L.S.). Experiments using hESC line WA-09 or iPSC lines were supported by NIMH grants 2RO1 MH066912 (S.A.) and 1RC1MH089690 (S.A. and L.S.) and by the Swiss National Science Foundation grant no. 31003A_135565 (H.R.W.).
