Stem Cells Taken From Teeth Can Make Brain-like Cells
2014-05-01 03:05:01

University of Adelaide University of Adelaide researchers have discovered that stem cells taken from teeth can grow to resemble brain cells, suggesting they could one day be used in the brain as a therapy for stroke. In the University's Centre for Stem Cell Research, laboratory studies have shown that stem cells from teeth can develop and form complex networks of brain-like cells. Although these cells haven't developed into fully fledged neurons, researchers believe it's just a matter...

Stem Cell Therapy Regenerates Heart Muscle After Heart Attacks: Animal Trials
2014-05-01 07:02:06

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online When a heart attack occurs, the oxygen-rich blood that normally flows through is interrupted by the blockage in an artery. The longer that blood flow is restricted or cut off, the more tissue and muscle in the area dies or is scarred. The eventual result can be heart failure, especially if one heart attack is followed by another. In 2013, Harvard Health Publications released a report taking a look at the state of stem cell research...

Finding raises hope for new therapies for people with heart damage Imagine filling a hole in your heart by regrowing the tissue. While that possibility is still being explored in people, it is a reality in salamanders. A recent discovery that newt hearts can regenerate may pave the way to new therapies in people who need to have damaged tissue replaced with healthy tissue. Heart disease is the leading cause of deaths in the United States. Preventative measures like healthful diets and...

Unlocking The Secrets Of Death In A Long-Lived Individual's Blood
2014-04-28 10:35:58

Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online They say that only two things in life are certain: death and taxes. For the former, a new study of the blood of one of the world’s oldest women has offered clues to not only why death occurs, but may also unlock some of the secrets of longevity. Hendrikie van Andel-Schipper, who was born in 1890 and lived to the ripe old age of 115, was at the time of her death in 2005 the oldest person in the world. But as astonishing as that...

Shawn Ahmed, PhD, shows that tweaking specific cellular mechanisms helps tiny worms overcome infertility through a pathway of cellular interactions that result in long life. The finding gives clues to how the molecular interactions in cells of one organism affect progeny many generations later. The evidence for what causes aging has typically been limited to the study of a single organism’s lifespan; our cells divide many times throughout our lives and eventually cause organs and our...

The Vase Tunicate (Ciona intestinalis) is a species of sea squirt widely distributed in Northern European waters. It has also spread to other parts of the world, where it is considered invasive. It grows in dense aggregations on any floating or submerged substrate, especially on artificial structures like pilings, aquaculture gear, floats and boat hulls. It is found in the lower intertidal and subtidal zones. Sea squirts have been long recognized as being possibly the closest invertebrate...

The Orthoptera are an order of insects with incomplete metamorphosis, including the grasshoppers, crickets, locusts, and katydids. Many insects in this order produce sound (known as stridulation) by rubbing their wings against each other or their legs, the wings or legs containing rows of corrugated bumps. Their ears, located in the front legs, are interconnected in such a way that they are able to locate each other by sound. Characteristics Orthopterans have two pairs of wings - the...
