BACKGROUND: Role of PGCs for producing transgenic chickens has significantly increased recently as a result of their exclusives capabilities. Primordial germ cells (PGCs) isolation in high numbers is the first step toward transgenic chicken production.
METHODS: In the present study we used the main methods to purify chicken PGCs including the isolating of PGCs with ammonium chloride-potassium (ACK) buffer, Ficoll and percoll density gradient centrifugation, and using the Magnetic cell sorting (MACS). We compared the methods based on the number of PGCs obtained.
RESULTS: Our results show that Ficoll density gradient centrifugation method is the preferential method.
CONCLUSIONS: There is a demand for a more suitable method for more efficient PGCs isolation.
