Nanomedicine Gives the Way for Nerve Cell Regeneration
...nerve growth. This technology has been tested by culturing
rat nerve tissue ex vivo on our bioactive aligned nanofiber scaffolds. When the nerve tissue was cultured on unaligned nanofibers there was no nerve fiber growth onto the scaffolds. However, on aligned nanofiber scaffolds, they not only observed nerv...
Gene Study To Reveal Radiation Poisoning
...s currently used for making such diagnoses involve culturing
bone marrow cells drawn from the hip to search for chromosomal damage, or else, repeatedly drawing blood over several days to measure accumulating damage to lymphocytes. Yet, both these processes take longer than the critical 48-to-72-hour period d...
Scientists Re-grow Dental Enamel from Cultured Cells
...icially growing enamel, or even whole teeth, using culturing
and transplantation techniques. In the emergent fi...y of Tokyo (Japan), reports on a new technique for culturing
cells that have the capacity to produce enamel. This group has recently shown that epithelial cel...
Scientists Have Developed Faster, More Accurate TB Test
...forming the current tests. The new test works by culturing
the TB organism in a liquid, rather than the traditional solid substance. This enables it to grow more rapidly, and for scientists to detect its characteristic pattern of tangles or coils under a microscope relatively easily. The liquid media also ...
Suitable Culturing Medium, essential for Stem Cell Development
...ave found that only by interacting with a suitable culturing
surface, the developing stem cell attained ability to form any type of cell in the body and acquired its identity. Using an animal model of embryonic stem cell development, researchers with UF's McKnight Brain Institute have begun to answer one of ...
In-Vivo Gene Therapy Technique to Cure XSCID in Basset Pups
...om the patient. In addition, the manipulation and culturing
of the cells outside the body may alter their ability to provide for long-term generation of new immune cells.’ The Penn researchers and their NIAID colleagues, led by Drs. Suk See Ting-De Ravin and Harry L. Malech took a different approach by dir...
The Novel Cut and Splice Method Is Used To Recognize Different Microbes
...fy potential threats to human health. He said that culturing
technique to identify microbes are very time consuming and error prone. On the other hand sequencing entire genomes is labor intensive and costly. So scientists were looking out for new techniques that could identify key segments of genetic code that...
Functional Taste Cells Cultured In Vitro
...vestigator said that the new technique of in vitro culturing
of taste cells would help them to discover molecules that can enhance or block different kinds of tastes.// Researchers from the Monell Chemical Senses Center have succeeded in growing mature taste receptor cells outside the body. They have also been...
