A novel technique allows researchers to efficiently and precisely modify or introduce genes into the genomes of human embryonic stem cells (ESCs) and induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells, according to Whitehead scientists.
The research team reported its findings in the paper "Induction of Stem Cell Gene Expression in Adult Human Fibroblasts without Transgenes," published online July 21, 2009
Investigators at Burnham Institute for Medical Research (Burnham) have learned that a protein called Shp2 plays a critical role in the pathways that control decisions for differentiation or self-renewal in both human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) and mouse embryonic stem cells (mESCs).
Scientists at the Stanford University School of Medicine and at UC-San Francisco have succeeded in isolating stem cells from human testes. The cells bear a striking resemblance to embryonic stem cells "” they can differentiate into each of the three main types of tissues of the body "” but the researchers caution against viewing them as one and the same.According to the study, the testes stem cells have different patterns of gene expression and regulation and they do not...
CAMBRIDGE, England, November 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- - European IRES Patent Upheld and UK Patent on Cell Screening Technology Granted - ("Stem Cell Sciences", "SCS", "the Company") IRES Patent Upheld in Appeal Hearing at the EPO Stem Cell Sciences plc (AIM:STEM, ASX:STC) announces that European patent no.
A team of scientists at IBM (NYSE: IBM) and the Genome Institute of Singapore (GIS) have discovered that microRNAs --small molecules that are an important regulatory component in the machinery of living cells -- actually regulate the differentiation of stem cells and have roles that go way beyond what was previously thought.
U.S. scientists say they've discovered how microRNA molecules are activated -- an event that is critical for the creation of embryonic stem cells.

By Patricia Reaney LONDON (Reuters) - A gene named after the mythical Celtic land of the ever young could help explain how to reprogram adult cells into embryonic stem cells to treat diseases, researchers said on Wednesday.
