New Blood Vessels can Be Created from Bone Marrow Stem Cells: Study

...ow were mesenchymal cells, the stem cells that can differentiate into several cell types and which would not trigger an immune reaction when transplanted into another individual. "If true, this means that you may be able to develop a universal cell source for smooth muscle cells, so that you could potentially ma...

Nanospectrometer Aids in Identifying Nutrient Cycle

...dies have shown that some photosynthetic cells can differentiate into heterocysts: thick-walled relatives that fix nitrogen but do not produce oxygen. Using NanoSIMS, Capone and Nealson followed nitrogen as it is fixed in heterocysts and then transported to the other cells, where it is needed as a nutrient. Ca...

Cord Blood may Hold Potential Therapy for Type 1 Diabetes

...pancreas or possibly introduce stem cells that can differentiate into insulin-producing cells," Haller said. "This isn't a cure-all.
