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...
