Disease analysis
In an open-access paper published in Cell Stem Cell this month, researchers have explained how organoids derived from human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs) are being used to analyze diseases and develop treatments. Different sources for different conditions This review includes both human embryonic stem cells (hESCs), which are derived from the human organism at its...
Blank credentials
Researchers publishing in Nature Biotechnology have demonstrated a method of protecting mass-produced stem cells from the immune system, with strongly positive results in two different animal models. Fake ID for the immune system While it would be ideal to create stem cells from each person's existing cells to replace that particular person's needs and losses,...
Blood cells
Scientists have discovered that the protein Netrin-1 alleviates the age-related decline in hematopoietic stem cell function in mice, enhancing HSC transplantation and protecting these mice from the harmful effects of chemotherapy [1]. (Not) a niche problem Why we Age: Stem Cell ExhaustionStem cell exhaustion is the age-related deficiency of stem cells. This particular hallmark is...
Gray hair
Researchers publishing in Nature have made the surprising discovery that pigmentation cells (melanocytes) can naturally transition back into the stem cell state in a process called dedifferentiation. A kinship with hair follicle cells These researchers begin their study by discussing stem cells and their proliferation. In the common understanding, which appears to be true for...
Dividing cell
In a preprint paper published on bioRxiv, researchers including JoΓ£o Pedro de MagalhΓ£es have gotten a glimpse at how stemness declines across tissues with aging. Using AI to get a grasp on stemness Why we Age: Stem Cell ExhaustionStem cell exhaustion is the age-related deficiency of stem cells. This particular hallmark is directly responsible for...
Heart representation
Researchers publishing in Nature Biotechnology have generated epicardioids, which are pluripotent, self-organizing stem cells that allow for better understanding, research, and potentially prevention and treatment of heart disease. A background of heart development The epicardium, a layer of cells surrounding the heart, plays a major role in human embryonic development. Some of these cells migrate...
