UCSF-led study sheds light on muscle-to-bone transformation Researchers have developed a new way to study bone disorders and bone growth, using stem cells from patients afflicted with a rare, genetic bone disease. The approach, based on Nobel-Prize winning techniques, could illuminate the illness, in which muscles and tendons progressively turn into bone, and addresses the similar destructive process that afflicts a growing number of veterans who have suffered blast injuries — including...

New Hope For Stem Cells For Application In Regenerative Medicine
2013-12-17 14:15:58

[ Watch The Video: Reprogramming Adult Somatic Cells to Pluripotency ] The Journal of Visualized Experiments Today, December 17, JoVE, the Journal of Visualized Experiments, has published a novel technique that could resolve a snag in stem cell research for application in regenerative medicine—a strategy for reprograming cells in vivo to act like stem cells that forgoes the risk of causing tumors. Dr. Kostas Kostarelos, principal investigator of the Nanomedicine Lab at the...

Generating new cardiac muscle from human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) and/or induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC) could fulfill the demand for therapeutic applications and drug testing. The production of a similar population of these cells remains a major limitation, but in a study just published in STEM CELLS Translational Medicine, researchers now believe they have found a way to do this. Durham, NC (PRWEB) December 09, 2013 Generating new cardiac muscle from human embryonic stem cells...

Researchers Discover How To Change Cell Types By Flipping A Single Switch
2013-12-04 13:05:09

University of California - Santa Barbara With few exceptions, cells don't change type once they have become specialized — a heart cell, for example, won't suddenly become a brain cell. However, new findings by researchers at UC Santa Barbara have identified a method for changing one cell type into another in a process called forced transdifferentiation. Their work appears today in the journal Development. With C. elegans as the animal model, lead author Misty Riddle, a Ph.D. student...
