PubMed Commons is an experimental system of commenting on PubMed abstracts, introduced in October 2013. Comments are displayed on the abstract page, but during the initial closed pilot, only registered users can read or post comments. Any researcher who is listed as an author of an article indexed by PubMed is entitled to participate in the pilot. If you would like to participate and need an invitation, please email, giving the PubMed ID of an article on which you are an author. For more information, see the PubMed Commons FAQ.

Can it really achieve globin switching in vitro within one-phase system?

First, I can not blieve erythropoiesis under 34-day induction with high EPO and other cell factors. In my experience, erythropoiesis will end in 2-3 is too long to sustain differenetiation. Second, in one-phase system, it can not realize globin switching spontaneously, at least I supposed so. There is a incompatible result from another reference this year, in which the globin switching can only happen under feeder cell co-culture system. So, which one is the right veritas?
