Tweaking the levels of factors used during the reprogramming of adult cells into induced pluriopotent stem (iPS) cells can greatly affect the quality of the resulting iPS cells, according to Whitehead Institute researchers.
According to a new study, any legislation that slows human embryonic stem cell research is likely to also seriously harm the study of induced pluripotent stem cells.
Researchers at Johns Hopkins have found a better way to create induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cellsâ€”adult cells reprogrammed with the properties of embryonic stem cellsâ€”from a small blood sample.
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).
Stored samples of frozen blood can be used to make cells that resemble stem cells, potentially creating a new and easier source for the valued cells, researchers said on Thursday.
TAU develops method for tracking adult stem cells as they regress.
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 on Thursday announced the creation of mice from reprogrammed induced pluripotent stem cells.
UCLA researchers have found that embryonic stem cells and skin cells reprogrammed into embryonic-like stem cells have inherent molecular differences, demonstrating for the first time that the two cell types are clearly distinguishable from one another.
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
