2013-08-02 07:55:05

University of California - San Diego Approach has potential to simplify generation of iPSCs for use in human stem cell therapies Researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine report a simple, easily reproducible RNA-based method of generating human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) in the August 1 edition of Cell Stem Cell. Their approach has broad applicability for the successful production of iPSCs for use in human stem cell studies and eventual cell...

CHOP researchers advance stem cell studies in a childhood leukemia and diamond blackfan anemia First produced only in the past decade, human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) are capable of developing into many or even all human cell types. In new research, scientists reprogrammed skin cells from patients with rare blood disorders into iPSCs, highlighting the great promise of these cells in advancing understanding of those challenging diseases—and eventually in...

Urine Stem Cells Used To Grow Teeth In The Lab
2013-07-30 08:25:59

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A team of researchers from China's Guangzhou Institutes of Biomedicine and Health have demonstrated human teeth can be generated by stem cells from a very interesting source: Urine. The Chinese team says they can also generate other solid organs and tissues from human waste. It's been observed before that stem cells are found in urine. Furthermore, when these stem cells are collected, scientists can coerce them to become induced...

Nuanced Approach To Creating Stem Cells
2013-07-19 10:25:21

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Stem cell studies are producing some of the most promising research results for replacing or regenerating damaged tissue, and a new study from a team of Spanish and American scientists has described a more flexible approach to creating the valuable cells. Nobel Prize laureate Shinya Yamanaka developed the initial formula for developing induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), or stem cells created by reverse-engineering...

Adult Human Cells Used To Create Long-Lived Blood Vessels
2013-07-16 09:20:13

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) researchers have managed to create long-lasting blood vessels from reprogrammed human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), This groundbreaking research is published in the latest issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) Early Edition. Using vascular precursor cells derived from iPSCs, reprogrammed adult cells that have several of the same characteristics of...

A new protocol for reprogramming induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) into mature blood cells, using just a small amount of the patient’s own blood and a readily available cell type, is reported on in the current issue of STEM CELLS Translational Medicine. This novel method skips the generally accepted process of mixing iPSCs with either mouse or human stromal cells during the differentiation process and, in essence, ensures no outside and potentially harmful DNA is introduced into the...

Word of the Day
  • Like a worm in form or movement; vermiform; tortuous or sinuous; also, writhing or wriggling.
  • Like the track or trace of a worm; appearing as if worm-eaten; vermiculate.
  • Marked with fine, close-set, wavy or tortuous lines of color; vermiculated.
  • A form of rusticated masonry which is so wrought as to appear thickly indented with worm-tracks.
This word ultimately comes from the Latin 'vermis,' worm.
