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...

Non-coding RNA is essential for normal embryonic cardiogenesis Many different tissues and organs form from pluripotent stem cells during embryonic development. To date it had been known that these processes are controlled by transcription factors for specific tissues. Scientists from the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics in Berlin, in collaboration with colleagues at MIT and the Broad Institute in Boston, have now been able to demonstrate that RNA molecules, which do not act as...


Word of the Day
negawatt
  • A unit of saved energy.
Coined by Amory Lovins, chairman of the Rocky Mountain Institute as a contraction of negative watt on the model of similar compounds like megawatt.
