SEOUL, South Korea, Nov. 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Research study on developing the advanced homing effect of stem cells has been published. Research team at RNL BIO led by Dr. Jeong Chan Ra has conducted a study on how chemokines and other growth factors, which are cellular signaling molecules, fat derived stem cell activity. The team identified that TNF-alpha (Tumor Necrosis Factor-alpha): a cytokine that regulates the response to the immune system was used to stimulate stem cells,...

Biologists at the University of California, San Diego have succeeded in unraveling, for the first time, the complete chain of biochemical reactions that controls the synthesis of auxin, the hormone that regulates nearly all aspects of plant growth and development. Their discovery, detailed in a paper in this week's online edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, will allow agricultural scientists to develop new ways to enhance or manipulate auxin production to...

Research on controlling the stem cells of plants could eventually lead to learning how to make them produce more fruit, seed and leaves, according to Dr. Xiuren Zhang, Texas AgriLife Research scientist and professor with the Texas A&M University department of biochemistry and biophysics. Results of a nearly three-year project led by an AgriLife Research team headed by Zhang was published in Cell, one of the most cited scientific peer-review journals in the world. "Working with the shoot...

A mechanism for stabilizing the development of the plant organism During the development of organisms, a particular event repeatedly occurs: a signal appears temporarily, but the processes it triggers must be maintained "“ for example, when the fate of cells in the embryo is established. The plant hormone auxin plays an important role as a signaling molecule during embryo development of the thale cress (Arabidopsis thaliana), a model plant widely used in genetic studies. Researchers...

A popular cancer drug could be produced cheaply and sustainably using stem cells derived from trees, a study suggests A popular cancer drug could be produced cheaply and sustainably using stem cells derived from trees, a study suggests. Researchers have isolated and grown stem cells from a yew tree whose bark is a natural source of the anticancer compound paclitaxel. The development could enable the compound to be produced on a commercial scale at low cost, with no harmful by-products....

The two most important growth hormones of plants, so far considered antagonists, also work synergistically. The activities of auxin and cytokinin, key molecules for plant growth and the formation of organs, such as leaves and buds, are in fact more closely interwoven than previously assumed. Scientists from Heidelberg, Tbingen (Germany) and Umea (Sweden) made this surprising discovery in a series of complex experiments using thale cress (Arabidopsis thaliana), a biological reference organism....

People aren't the only living things that suffer from stress. Trees must deal with stress too. It can come from a lack of water or too much water, from scarcity of a needed nutrient, from pollution or a changing climate. Helping trees and crops adapt to stress quickly and efficiently is a pressing goal of plant biologists worldwide. Now research led by Michigan Technological University scientists has identified the molecular mechanism that Populus"”the scientific name for common...

Power struggle between genetic master switches decides stem cell fate, growth orientation in plants The first order of business for any fledgling plant embryo is to determine which end grows the shoot and which end puts down roots. Now, researchers at the Salk Institute expose the turf wars between two groups of antagonistic genetic master switches that set up a plant's polar axis with a root on one end and a shoot on the other. "In what is arguably the most important decision for a plant,...
