Insight Into Neural Stem Cells Has Implications For Designing Therapies

...ells. In theory you could activate these genes in embryonic stem cells in the culture dish to try to create the desired type of neuron". The Alvarez-Buylla lab has identified neural stem cells in the adult human brain, but it is not known if these cells are heterogeneous. If human brains show a similar regi...

Cocaine Exposure can Alter Neuronal Development in Zebrafish

...ronal development in zebrafish and acutely changed embryonic expression of genes regulating growth, neurotransmission and circadian system. Moreover, we found that the effects of the cocaine exposure were dependent on time of exposure, being more robust in the day, and were blocked or attenuated by the princ...

Bush vehemently opposes and has refused to fund, the controversial morning-after pill and sex education. Senior administration officials also delayed the publication of a major study on passive s...

Boffin Identifies Gene Causing Otosclerosis

...nvolvement in otosclerosis: it plays a role during embryonic development of the ear and is expressed in otosclerotic bone. They used SNP (single nucleotide polymorphism) analysis, or looking at DNA sequence variations occurring in a single nucleotide, A, T, C or G, to study a large patient and control popula...

Genome Annotation by Mutation

...esearchers to make multiple manipulations in mouse embryonic stem cells, which means those cells are less likely to yield mice with the desired stretch of DNA disabled, Capecchi says. To quickly, cheaply mutate genes or none-gene DNA, Wu and Capecchi used short pieces of DNA known as loxP. Pieces of loxP act...

Fishing for a Speedy Recovery After Chemotherapy or Marrow Transplant

...n mammalian models. When dmPGE2 was added to mouse embryonic stem cells in the lab, production of blood stem cells increased. In mice that underwent bone marrow transplant, treatment with dmPGE2 led to enhanced blood-stem-cell formation, and the stem cells remained present in the marrow more than six months af...

A New Milestone in Stem Cell Research

...sues that would result from use of stem cells from embryonic or foetal tissue. Current treatments aim to keep the patient alive with a heart that is working less efficiently than before the heart attack. Cardiac stem cell therapy aims to repair the damaged heart as it has the potential to replace the damaged...

60% of Infertile Couples are Okay With Allowing Unused Embryos for Stem Cell Research

...lical cord blood. Currently, federal funding for embryonic stem cell research is limited to research on stem cell lines derived from embryos before August 2001, and may not be used for any research in which an embryo is destroyed. Funding from private or state funding sources is growing, but is still insuffi...

A New Signaling Mechanism in Drosophila

... gene called torso-like during the early stages of embryonic development of the Drosophila fly. Two groups of cells activated the same torso-like gene separately and by different mechanisms when they were still in separate compartments inside the Drosophila ovary. Subsequently, the cells migrated until they me...

Genopole(R) is Organizing an Advanced Course on Stem Cells and Their Therapeutic Applications

New Technique Dissects Stem Cells' Picky Likes, Dislikes

...ies of weeklong experiments, the team placed human embryonic stem (ES) cells onto the squares in the arrays, set the arrays in a culture plate and added a culture medium on top. What they found is that five of the 18 surfaces - each displaying just a single peptide from laminin - did as well as the mixture Mat...

Republican Presidential Candidates Discuss Abortion, Stem Cells as Part of First Debate

...ly candidates to support federal funding for human embryonic stem cell research. Giuliani offered support for funding such research if it is "not creating life in order to destroy it, as long as we're not having human cloning, and we limit it to that". Brownback voiced his opposition to the research, saying, "...
