By coating tiny gel beads with lung-derived stem cells and then allowing them to self-assemble into the shapes of the air sacs found in human lungs, researchers have succeeded in creating three-dimensional lung "organoids." The laboratory-grown lung-like tissue can be used to study diseases including idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, which has traditionally been difficult to study using conventional methods.

Scientists discovered that boosting mice's cholesterol levels spurred intestinal stem cells to divide more quickly, enabling tumors to form 100 times faster. The study identifies a molecular pathway that could serve as a new drug target for colon cancer treatment.

Ribosomes found to induce somatic cell pluripotency

Added: 15.02.2018 21:37 | 0 views | 0 comments

In 2012, a Japanese research group discovered that human skin cells acquire pluripotency when introduced to lactic acid bacteria (Lactobacillus acidophilus). Now, the same group of researchers have found that the cause of somatic cell conversion into pluripotent stem cells is the ribosome, a protein synthesizing cellular organelle.

Clues to Aging Found in Fruit Flies’ Stem Cells

Added: 15.02.2018 16:51 | 1 views | 0 comments

Reproductive stem cells of male fruit flies (Drosophila melanogaster) use a genetic trick to stay perpetually young across generations, according to new research published in the journal eLife. Certain sections of the fruit fly genome get shorter with age. But remarkably, some reproductive cells can repair the shrinkage. This genomic shrinkage may underlie aspects of [...]

Induced pluripotent stem cells could serve as cancer vaccine

Added: 15.02.2018 12:50 | 0 views | 0 comments

Induced pluripotent stem cells, or iPS cells, are a keystone of regenerative medicine. Outside the body, they can be coaxed to become many different types of cells and tissues that can help repair damage due to trauma or disease. Now, a study in mice suggests another use for iPS cells: training the immune system to attack or even prevent tumors.
