Stem cells have the ability undergoes a self-renewal and differentiation. Medaka ES cells are excellent model system for differentiation. It provides properties for tissue repair, replacement and regeneration. This culture techniques are used to treat cancer, wound healing, drug screening, autoimmune diseases, cardiovascular and neurological disorders. Many cell lines are completely reported. Stem cell cultures have been studied in 3 vertebrate organisms. These are mouse, human and small laboratory fish called medaka. We will focus our review on fish stem cell culture, its applications and advancement.
