The mechanism whereby embryonic cells stop being flexible and turn into more mature cells that can develop into specific tissues has been discovered by scientists at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. The discovery has significant consequences towards furthering research that will eventually make possible medical cell replacement therapy based on the use of embryonic cells. At a very early stage of human development, all cells of the embryo are identical, but unlike adult cells are very...

REHOVOT, ISRAEL, October 28, 2005 "“ Some fundamental outstanding questions in science "“ "Where do stem cells originate?" "How does cancer develop?" "When do cell types split off from each other in the embryo?" "“ might be answered if scientists had a way to map the history of the body's cells going back to the fertilized egg. Now, a multidisciplinary team at the Weizmann Institute of Science has developed an analytical method that can trace the lineage trees of cells....

Four sugar-coated faces made by stem cells as they differentiate into brain cells during development have been identified by scientists. These unique expressions of sugar on the cell surface may one day enable stem cell therapy to repair brain injury or disease by helping stem cells navigate the relative "jungle" of the adult brain, says Dr. Robert K. Yu, director of the Institute of Neuroscience and the Institute for Molecular Medicine and Genetics at the Medical College of Georgia. "These...
