es and cells that reproduce continuously are high passage lines.
The team studied the cells as they self-replicated, capturing images with high-resolution equipment to locate any mutations in the DNA structure. Cells were allowed to replicate between 22 and 175 times, a process which typically takes between four and five days.
At the end of the monitored replication, the researc......Full article >>>
ritical to evaluate how the aforementioned changes impact the ability of HESC to generate these cell types, as well as the implication of these changes for the safety of the cell types generated," Cezar said.
The cells may be able to play a more valued role in this study, as they could be used as a new tool for curing cancer. Since their growth and mutation is monitored so closely - down......Full article >>>
