Stem Cells in Plants and Animals Behave Surprisingly Similarly

May 12, 2017 — A new study shows that the behavior of stem cells in plants and animals is surprisingly similar. The researchers were able to produce mathematical equations that reveal very small differences in the ... read more

May 11, 2017 — Single-cell RNA sequencing has allowed researchers to identify adult stem cells as they transform into mature cells, but the process becomes complicated when stem cells can transform into several ... read more

May 10, 2017 — Biologists have identified a major switch that occurs as lung adenomas transition to more aggressive adenocarcinomas -- and that blocking this switch prevents the transition. The findings suggest ... read more

Scientists Unveil the UK's Largest Resource of Human Stem Cells from Healthy Donors

May 10, 2017 — One of the largest sets of high quality human induced pluripotent stem cell lines from healthy individuals has been produced by a consortium involving the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute. ... read more

Fixing Broken Hearts Through Tissue Engineering

May 6, 2017 — The third annual Cardiovascular Tissue Engineering Symposium met at the University of Alabama at Birmingham last month, a gathering of noted physicians and scientists who share the goal of creating ... read more

Vitamin A Deficiency Is Detrimental to Blood Stem Cells

May 5, 2017 — Lack of vitamin A in the body has a detrimental effect on the hematopoietic system in the bone marrow. The deficiency causes a loss of important blood stem cells, scientists now report. These ... read more

How Neurons and Glia Cells Are Created in the Developing Brain

May 3, 2017 — Neurons and glia are the cells that make up our brain. In the cortex, the brain area that enables us to think, speak and be conscious, they are produced by a particular type of neural stem cell. But ... read more

May 3, 2017 — Scientists have announced two major findings that further our understanding of how stem cells become organs: the ability to grow and purify the earliest lung progenitors that emerge from human stem ... read more

May 1, 2017 — Researchers have created a new tool, based on the principles of topology, to generate a roadmap of the many possible ways in which a stem cell may develop into specialized ... read more

Purifying Cells to Treat Disease

Apr. 29, 2017 — Refining the purification process of therapeutic cells could improve their use for treating cancer and other diseases, report ... read more

Single Gene Encourages Growth of Intestinal Stem Cells, Supporting 'Niche' Cells, and Cancer

Apr. 28, 2017 — A gene previously identified as critical for tumor growth in many human cancers also maintains intestinal stem cells and encourages the growth of cells that support them, according to results of a ... read more

Apr. 27, 2017 — Using CRISPR technology, a team of researchers rewired stem cells' genetic circuits to produce an anti-inflammatory arthritis drug when the cells encounter inflammation. The technique eventually ... read more
