Blood stem cells literally go with the flow, according to a new report published as an immediate early publication in the journal Cell, a Cell Press journal, on May 13th.
U.S.-led scientists say they have identified a gene that can protect against leukemia and other blood cancers, possibly paving the way for new therapies. The University of California-San Francisco researchers said they discovered the JunB gene controls the rapid production and differentiation of stem cells that produce all blood cell types.
Researchers have identified a gene that controls the rapid production and differentiation of the stem cells that produce all blood cell typesâ€”a discovery that could eventually open the door to more streamlined treatments for leukemia and other blood cancers, in which blood cells proliferate out of control.
For the first time, scientists have shown that amniotic fluid (the protective liquid surrounding an embryo) may be a potential new source of stem cells for therapeutic applications.
WASHINGTON, March 31 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- For the first time, scientists have shown that amniotic fluid (the protective liquid surrounding an embryo) may be a potential new source of stem cells for therapeutic applications.
Using a mouse model of human leukemia, researchers have unlocked more information about the genetic factors related to the generation and maintenance of leukemia stem cells.
Stem cells of any kind are defined by their eternal nature, reproducing themselves and providing a pool of cells from which more differentiated tissues arise.
By using OP9-DL1 cells as a support system, researchers can study the differentiation of embryonic stem cells into mature components of the immune system.
