Australian scientists from the Monash Institute of Medical Research have "reprogrammed" adult mouse fat cells and neural cells to become stem cells that can differentiate into a variety of different cells (pluripotency).

In the Feb 7 issue of the journal Nature, scientists at the Genome Institute of Singapore (GIS), report that a genetic molecule, called Tbx3, which is crucial for many aspects of early developmental processes in mammals, significantly improves the quality of stem cells that have been reprogrammed from differentiated cells.

Scientists in California say they've made an important step forward in the race to make reprogrammed stem cells without problematic genes. Shen Ding and colleagues at the Scripps Research Institute say they've developed a way to reprogram mouse cells to form stem cells using a combination of purified
