Removing Cellular Bookmarks Smooths the Path to Stem Cells

Sep. 20, 2016 — Cells use specific proteins that help the cell remember what collection of genes needs to be turned on again after cell division. Removing these transcriptional bookmarks may be a key to better ... read more

Sep. 13, 2016 — Researchers have discovered a new technique for generating rapidly-differentiating human neural stem cells for use in a variety of tissue engineering applications, including a three-dimensional model ... read more

Sep. 8, 2016 — Scientists have implicated a type of stem cell in the calcification of blood vessels that is common in patients with chronic kidney disease. The research will guide future studies into ways to block ... read more

Sep. 8, 2016 — Scientists have succeeded in generating induced pluripotent stem cells from a rare disorder called Nijmegen breakage syndrome and to push these cells to become early neurons, revealing the mechanisms ... read more

Umbilical Cord Blood Transplant Is Associated With High Survival Rate Among High-Risk Leukemia Patients

Sep. 7, 2016 — Umbilical cord blood transplants may have advantages beyond offering an alternative stem cell source for leukemia patients without a traditional donor match, according to a ... read more

Combination Therapy Shows Promise for Chronic Myeloid Leukemia

Sep. 7, 2016 — A study in mice combining two inhibitor drugs for treatment of chronic myeloid leukemia has revealed potential for not only stopping the disease completely, but also significantly lowering the cost ... read more

Sep. 2, 2016 — Cell models from stem cells serve an ever-increasing role in research of cardiac dysfunction. Researchers have succeeded in producing cells which offer new insights into properties of the heart. They ... read more

Blood Cancer Treatment May Age Immune Cells as Much as 30 Years

Sep. 1, 2016 — Researchers, by tracking a molecular marker that has been shown to increase in white blood cells as people age, have uncovered clues that suggest that stem cell transplant is linked to a marked ... read more

Signaling Cascade That Drives Fatty Tumors

Aug. 31, 2016 — A common cell signaling pathway that controls differentiation of stem cells may also control the formation of tumor cells in fat, according to a new ... read more

Researchers Use a Single Molecule to Command Stem Cells to Build New Bone

Aug. 31, 2016 — An easy and efficient way to coax human pluripotent stem cells to regenerate bone tissue has been identified by researchers: feed them adenosine, a naturally occurring molecule in the body. The ... read more

Aug. 30, 2016 — Using advanced stem cell technology, scientists have created a model of a heart condition called hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) -- an excessive thickening of the heart that is associated with a ... read more

Aug. 29, 2016 — Researchers have found a better way to purify liver cells made from induced pluripotent stem cells. This new methodology could facilitate progress toward an important clinical goal: the treatment of ... read more

Mechanism Identified Through Which Lead May Harm Neural Cells, Children's Neurodevelopment

Aug. 26, 2016 — Researchers have identified a potential molecular mechanism through which lead, a pervasive environmental toxin, may harm neural stem cells and neurodevelopment in ... read more

Aug. 26, 2016 — Researchers have identified RNA-based biomarkers that distinguish between normal, aging hematopoietic stem cells and leukemia stem cells associated with secondary acute myeloid leukemia (sAML), a ... read more

Altering Stem Cell Perception of Tissue Stiffness May Help Treat Musculoskeletal Disorders

Aug. 25, 2016 — A new biomaterial can be used to study how and when stem cells sense the mechanics of their surrounding environment. With further development, this biomaterial could be used to control when immature ... read more

Aug. 25, 2016 — Researchers have succeeded in, for the first time, creating kidney progenitor cells that survive in the lab. But by using a three-dimensional culture and a new mixture of supporting molecules, the ... read more

Study Shows Protein Complex Essential to Creating Healthy Blood Cells

Aug. 25, 2016 — A group of proteins best known for helping to activate all mammalian genes has been found to play a particularly commanding role in the natural development of specialized stem cells into healthy ... read more

Aug. 25, 2016 — New research shows that certain primate stem cells have pluripotency superior to some types derived from mice. The study maps how pluripotency differs among mice, monkeys, and humans, and illustrates ... read more

Team Discovers How Zika Virus Causes Fetal Brain Damage

Aug. 24, 2016 — Infection by the Zika virus diverts a key protein necessary for neural cell division in the developing human fetus, thereby causing the birth defect microcephaly, a team of scientists ... read more

Barcodes Show the Blood Family Tree

Aug. 24, 2016 — By assigning a barcode to stem cells, researchers have made it possible to monitor large blood cell populations as well as individual blood cells, and study the changes over time. Among other things, ... read more
