Development of 2-week method for generating human induced-pluripotent stem cells with 200-fold increase in yield.
The findings by Scripps Research scientists brighten prospects of stem cell therapy for range of diseases.
A collaborative study by researchers at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies uncovered that the tumor suppressor p53, which made its name as "guardian of the genome"
The research team reported its findings in the paper "Induction of Stem Cell Gene Expression in Adult Human Fibroblasts without Transgenes," published online July 21, 2009
Researchers have discovered an added layer of complexity in the network that determines human embryonic stem cell fate.
The simple recipe scientists earlier discovered for making adult stem cells behave like embryonic-like stem cells just got even simpler. A new report in the February 6th issue of the journal Cell,
Whitehead Institute researchers have greatly simplified the creation of so-called induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells, cutting the number of viruses used in the reprogramming process from four to one.
U.S. scientists say they have identified compounds for stem cell production from adult cells, moving medicine closer to the reprogramming of general cells.
Tokyo, Oct. 10 (Jiji Press)--Shinya Yamanaka, a professor at Kyoto University, and his colleagues have created iPS cells from mice cells without using viral vectors that can cause cancer. Yamanaka's team is now trying to make similarly safe induced pluripotent stem cells from adult human cells.
Researchers claim they developed a safer way to make powerful stem cells from ordinary skin cells, improving research focused on so-called regenerative medicine.
