Adult Human Cells Used To Create Long-Lived Blood Vessels
2013-07-16 09:20:13

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) researchers have managed to create long-lasting blood vessels from reprogrammed human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), This groundbreaking research is published in the latest issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) Early Edition. Using vascular precursor cells derived from iPSCs, reprogrammed adult cells that have several of the same characteristics of...

A new protocol for reprogramming induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) into mature blood cells, using just a small amount of the patient’s own blood and a readily available cell type, is reported on in the current issue of STEM CELLS Translational Medicine. This novel method skips the generally accepted process of mixing iPSCs with either mouse or human stromal cells during the differentiation process and, in essence, ensures no outside and potentially harmful DNA is introduced into the...

Engineering stem cells Before scientists and engineers can realize the dream of using stem cells to create replacements for worn out organs and battle damaged body parts, they'll have to develop ways to grow complex three-dimensional structures in large volumes and at costs that won't bankrupt health care systems. Researchers are now reporting advances in these areas by using gelatin-based microparticles to deliver growth factors to specific areas of embryoid bodies, aggregates of...

A team of Toronto-based researchers may be one step closer to a 'recipe' for large-scale production of stem cells for use in research and therapy. Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) can be of great value for medical research because they can flexibly develop into many different types of cells. However, producing these cells is challenging because the proteins that control their generation are largely unknown. But researchers from the University of Toronto, the Hospital for Sick...

Brain Epigenome Changes Through Developmental Years

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online While the entire genome has been sequenced and the codes of many genes have been identified, there are is a wide range of unknown mechanisms that interact with the code without changing "letters" of the DNA. These chemical changes to DNA are referred to as the epigenome, and a new study in the journal Science has revealed significant epigenomic activity during brain development. DNA includes four chemical bases: adenine (A), guanine...

Singapore, July 2, 2013 - (ACN Newswire) - Scientists at A*STAR's Genome Institute of Singapore (GIS) and the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics (MPIMG) in Berlin (Germany) have discovered a molecular network in human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) that integrates cell communication signals to keep the cell in its stem cell state. These findings were reported in the June 2013 issue of Molecular Cell.Human embryonic stem cells have the remarkable property that they can form all human...
