Adhesive Force Differences Allows Separation Of Stem Cells To Advance Therapies
2013-04-08 11:28:26

Georgia Institute of Technology A new separation process that depends on an easily-distinguished physical difference in adhesive forces among cells could help expand production of stem cells generated through cell reprogramming. By facilitating new research, the separation process could also lead to improvements in the reprogramming technique itself and help scientists model certain disease processes. The reprogramming technique allows a small percentage of cells — often taken...

In a new study published by STEM CELLS Translational Medicine, scientists report on a way to produce natural cancer-killing cells in the lab in a quantity that could one day make them viable for treating patients. Durham, NC (PRWEB) March 20, 2013 In a new study published by STEM CELLS Translational Medicine, scientists report on a way to produce natural cancer-killing cells in the lab in a quantity that could one day make them viable for treating patients. While the production of human...

For the first time, scientists have transplanted neural cells derived from a monkey's skin into its brain and watched the cells develop into several types of mature brain cells, according to the authors of a new study in Cell Reports. After six months, the cells looked entirely normal, and were only detectable because they initially were tagged with a fluorescent protein. Because the cells were derived from adult cells in each monkey's skin, the experiment is a proof-of-principle for the...

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online As 3D printing methods develop and become more accessible, experts from all different fields are embracing the technology in pursuit of their own unique breakthroughs. According to a new report in the journal Biofabrication, a group of Scottish scientists has used this cutting edge type of construction to arrange human embryonic stem cells (hESC) into novel three-dimensional spheroids. Previous efforts have resulted in artificial...


Word of the Day
call-note
  • The call or cry of a bird or other animal to its mate or its young.
'Call-note' is newer than 'bird-call,' which originally referred to 'an instrument for imitating the note of birds' but now also refers to 'the song or cry of a bird.'
