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...

Do Salamanders Hold The Key To Limb Regeneration?
2014-06-20 03:50:11

University College London The secret of how salamanders successfully regrow body parts is being unraveled by UCL researchers in a bid to apply it to humans. For the first time, researchers have found that the 'ERK pathway' must be constantly active for salamander cells to be reprogrammed, and hence able to contribute to the regeneration of different body parts. The team identified a key difference between the activity of this pathway in salamanders and mammals, which helps us to...

Embryonic Stem Cells Offer Promising Treatment For Multiple Sclerosis
2014-06-17 03:34:58

University of Connecticut Scientists in the University of Connecticut’s Technology Incubation Program have identified a novel approach to treating multiple sclerosis (MS) using human embryonic stem cells, offering a promising new therapy for more than 2.3 million people suffering from the debilitating disease. The researchers demonstrated that the embryonic stem cell therapy significantly reduced MS disease severity in animal models, and offered better treatment results than stem...

Scientists Successfully Transplant And Grow Stem Cells In Pigs
2014-06-05 03:38:48

Nathan Hurst, University of Missouri One of the biggest challenges for medical researchers studying the effectiveness of stem cell therapies is that transplants or grafts of cells are often rejected by the hosts. This rejection can render experiments useless, making research into potentially life-saving treatments a long and difficult process. Now, researchers at the University of Missouri have shown that a new line of genetically modified pigs will host transplanted cells without the...

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...

Cell (journal)
