Latest Pluripotency Stories
Researchers at the RIKEN Omics Science Center (OSC) have successfully developed and demonstrated a new experimental technique for producing cells with specific functions through the artificial reconstruction of transcriptional regulatory networks.
Despite the promise associated with the therapeutic use of human stem cells, a complete understanding of the mechanisms that control the fundamental question of whether a stem cell becomes a specific cell type within the body or remains a stem cell has—until now—eluded scientists.
Scientists have found a way to generate and maintain stem cells much more efficiently by amplifying the effect of an essential protein.
Mouse skin cells can be converted directly into cells that become the three main parts of the nervous system.
Human stem cells capable of giving rise to any fetal or adult cell type are known as pluripotent stem cells.
The survival of the endangered snow leopard is looking promising thanks to Monash University scientists who have, for the first time, produced embryonic stem-like cells from the tissue of an adult leopard.
Stanford University School of Medicine investigators have shown that iPS cells, viewed as a possible alternative to human embryonic stem cells, can mirror the defining defects of a genetic condition — in this instance, Marfan syndrome — as well as embryonic stem cells can.
