Salk Institute New results ease previous concerns that gene-editing techniques—used to develop therapies for genetic diseases—could add unwanted mutations to stem cells. The ability to switch out one gene for another in a line of living stem cells has only crossed from science fiction to reality within this decade. As with any new technology, it brings with it both promise—the hope of fixing disease-causing genes in humans, for example—as well as questions and safety concerns....

2014-07-03 08:25:39

Rebekah Eliason for redOrbit.com – Your Universe Online In an exciting new study, researchers have discovered a way to collect cells for the regeneration of corneal tissue – the clear membrane covering the pupil that directs light into the back of the eye. The research team from Boston reported that purified human stem cells were used to improve long-term vision in mice. Currently, the team is waiting for FDA-approval to begin patient clinical trials. This collaborative research...

HSC Mesenchymal stem cells have become attractive tools for bioengineers, but some scientists haven’t given up on their regenerative potential Stem cell scientists had what first appeared to be an easy win for regenerative medicine when they discovered mesenchymal stem cells several decades ago. These cells, found in the bone marrow, can give rise to bone, fat, and muscle tissue, and have been used in hundreds of clinical trials for tissue repair. Unfortunately, the results of these...

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Type 1 diabetes is caused by the body's immune system attacking its own natural insulin-producing cells to the point where the body cannot properly regulate blood sugar levels. Researchers have been pursuing therapies that could “re-train” the body’s other cells to produce the proper amount of insulin necessary. Now, researchers from Columbia University Medical Center have announced the ability to convert cells in the human...

Knockout Mouse
2013-10-02 11:52:01

A Knockout Mouse is a genetically engineered mouse in which researchers have inactivated, or “knocked out,” an existing gene by replacing it or disrupting it with an artificial piece of DNA. The loss of gene activity frequently causes changes in a mouse’s phenotype, which includes appearance, behavior, or other apparent and biochemical characteristics. Knockout mice are significant animal models for studying the role of genes which have been sequenced but whose functions haven’t...
