Complete 2013-14 Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell Industry Report for research supply companies to optimally position themselves to sell iPSC products. Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) February 02, 2014 Stem cell research and experimentation has been in process for well over five decades, as stem cells have the unique ability to divide and replicate repeatedly. In addition, their “unspecialized” nature allows them to differentiate into a wide variety of specialized cell types. The possibilities...

A new study shows that, when properly manipulated, a population of support cells found in the brain called astrocytes could provide a new and promising approach to treat Parkinson's disease. These findings, which were made using an animal model of the disease, demonstrate that a single therapy could simultaneously repair the multiple types of neurological damage caused by Parkinson's, providing an overall benefit that has not been achieved in other approaches. "One of the central...

Japanese Scientists Dip Blood Cells In Acid To Create Stem Cells
2014-01-29 12:32:21

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Japanese scientists, publishing a paper in the journal Nature, have developed a new method in which stem cells could now be made quickly just by dipping blood cells into acid. The human body is made up of cells designed for a specific task, but stem cells can become any other type of cell, giving them huge potential in future medicine. However, stem cells have been the source of heated ethics discussions because embryos have been the...

Critical Protein For Healthy Cell Growth In Mammals Discovered
2014-01-28 12:37:01

Penn State University A team of researchers from Penn State University and the University of California has discovered a protein that is required for the growth of tiny, but critical, hair-like structures called cilia on cell surfaces. The discovery has important implications for human health because lack of cilia can lead to serious diseases such as polycystic kidney disease, blindness and neurological disorders. "If we want to better understand and treat diseases related to cilium...

[ Watch the Video: Bald Men May One Day Get Help From Stem Cells ] Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online While a Chinese cream may not have cured George Costanza’s baldness in a classic Seinfeld episode, stem cell research from scientists at the University of Pennsylvania has shown the potential for regenerating hair follicles – which could lead to relief for hair-challenged men everywhere. According to a new report published in the journal Nature Communications,...

Researchers from the University of Southern Denmark have identified how a mutated protein can lead to holes in a protein sitting in a cell's membrane. Such holes cause high blood pressure, and the discovery can now lead to new and better medication for high blood pressure. High blood pressure can be caused by many things - one of them being a specific mutated protein. Now the researchers at University of Southern Denmark have found out exactly what unfortunate events in the human organism...

A new method allows for large-scale generation of human embryonic stem cells of high clinical quality. It also allows for production of such cells without destroying any human embryos. The discovery is a big step forward for stem cell research and for the high hopes for replacing damaged cells and thereby curing serious illnesses such as diabetes and Parkinson's disease. Currently human embryonic stem cells are made from surplus in vitro fertilized (IVF) embryos that are not used for the...

Paneth Cells
2012-07-01 19:03:07

Paneth Cells are one of four principal cell types found in the epithelium of the small intestine; the other three are the goblet cell, enterocyte, and enteroendocrine cell. Paneth cells may also be found in the cecum and appendix, although sporadically. These cells are identifiable microscopically by their location just below the intestinal stem cells in the intestinal glands. and the large eosinophilic refractile granules that occupy most of their cytoplasm. These granules consist of...

Cell (journal)

Francisella tularensis is a pathogenic species of gram-negative bacteria and the causative agent of tularemia or rabbit fever. It is a facultative intracellular bacterium. It is classified as a Class A agent by the U.S. government due to its ease of spread by aerosol and its high virulence. In 1911 the species was found in ground squirrels in California. There are four subspecies that have been classified. Biovar tularensis is found mostly in North America. Biovar palearctica is found...
