Soy Products a Double-edged Sword for Breast Cancer
...puberty causes mammary gland differentiation. A differentiated
cell undergoes less proliferation and therefore is less likely to progress through the cancer process, he said. However, if the estrogen is administered to an animal after the development of an estrogen-responsive tumor, the growth of this tumor w...
Role of Protein in the Development of Prostate Cancer Identified
...hnologies de Lille, France, show that only mature, differentiated
human prostate primary epithelial luminal cells express functional plasma membrane TRPM8 (PM-TRPM8) and that prostate cancer cells possessed higher PM-TRPM8 levels than normal cells. However, endoplasmic reticulum TRPM8 (ER-TRPM8) retained its fun...

Neural Stem Cells Reduce Parkinsons Symptoms in Monkeys
...small number of the human neural stem cell progeny differentiated

Nanotechnology Could Treat Spinal Cord Injuries, Diabetes, and Parkinson's Disease
...xample saving damaged cells or regenerating needed differentiated
cells from stem cells. This same work also has implications for Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, both diseases in which key brain cells stop working properly. During his presentation, Dr. Stupp allowed a rare glimpse into ongoing research with coll...
Blood Pressure Tackled Better With Cocoa Than Tea
... suggests that the different plant phenols must be differentiated
with respect to their blood pressure-lowering potential and thus cardiovascular disease prevention, supposing that the tea phenols are less active than cocoa phenols,' the authors write. The findings do not indicate a widespread recommendation for...
Major Gene Study Uncovers Secrets of Leukemia

Cloning From Mice Hair Follicle Stem Cell
...air follicle stem cells were more capable than the differentiated
cells but not as good as embryonic cells. Stem cells are basically primitive cells which are undifferentiated. They have the potency to differentiate into many other types of cells. But this achievement currently holds good only in mice. There ar...

Scientists Identify Pancreatic Cancer Stem Cells
... stem cells in organs that have mutated, or from a differentiated
cell that has devolved to take on the qualities of stem cells. They are resistant to traditional therapy designed for cells that rapidly turn over because stem cells don’t, according to some researchers. Thus, they remain after tumors shrink and may ...
MIT Creates 3-D Scaffold for Growing Stem Cells
Stem cells grew, multiplied and differentiated
into brain cells on a new three-dimensional scaffold of tiny protein// fragments designed to be more like a living body than any other cell culture system. An MIT engineer and Italian colleagues will report the invention-which may one day replace t...
