Japanese Scientists Dip Blood Cells In Acid To Create Stem Cells
2014-01-29 12:32:21

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Japanese scientists, publishing a paper in the journal Nature, have developed a new method in which stem cells could now be made quickly just by dipping blood cells into acid. The human body is made up of cells designed for a specific task, but stem cells can become any other type of cell, giving them huge potential in future medicine. However, stem cells have been the source of heated ethics discussions because embryos have been the...

UCSF-led study sheds light on muscle-to-bone transformation Researchers have developed a new way to study bone disorders and bone growth, using stem cells from patients afflicted with a rare, genetic bone disease. The approach, based on Nobel-Prize winning techniques, could illuminate the illness, in which muscles and tendons progressively turn into bone, and addresses the similar destructive process that afflicts a growing number of veterans who have suffered blast injuries — including...

[ Watch The Video: Reprogramming Adult Somatic Cells to Pluripotency ] The Journal of Visualized Experiments Today, December 17, JoVE, the Journal of Visualized Experiments, has published a novel technique that could resolve a snag in stem cell research for application in regenerative medicine—a strategy for reprograming cells in vivo to act like stem cells that forgoes the risk of causing tumors. Dr. Kostas Kostarelos, principal investigator of the Nanomedicine Lab at the...

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...
