OHSU Researchers Announce New Discovery
...he gene in their nervous system, which resulted in embryos
with smaller brains with neurons, but no glial cells. When the neural stem cells were isolated and placed into cell culture, and the Brg1 was removed, the cells became neurons, but did not differentiate into glia. As the Brg1 expression which is i...
Stem Cell Bank In UK Would Require 150 Embryo-Derived Stem Cell Lines
...urprisingly, a sub-set of stem cells from 10 human embryos
have been identified that could theoretically provide a very good match for about 38% of recipients. Similar to human organ transplantation, the embryonic stem cells from a therapeutic bank would have to be tested for tissue compatibility to minimi...
Risk Of Birth Defects Slightly Increased Due To IVF
...efects. In the routine IVF protocol, two or more embryos
are commonly transferred to a woman's uterus to increase the chances of success. This has been pointed to increase birth defects owing to the possibility of multiple pregnancy (twins, triplets) and premature delivery. More studies are clearly indic...

Sperm stem cells could be an alternative to embryonic stem cells in future
...es stemming from the source of these cells - human embryos
or mouse cells. Ordinarily, when germ stem cells divide into two cells, one "daughter" cell differentiates to become a sperm while the other remains a stem cell. The study represents a remarkable breakthrough as the fate of the male germ cells that...
Embryonic Genetic Testing Is Boosting IVF Pregnancies
...such as cystic fibrosis or Down syndrome to screen embryos
and implant only those that do not carry the disease-causing genes in the mother's uterus. The test can also detect any chromosomal abnormalities that may affect an embryo's chance of survival once it has been implanted in the uterus. PGD was devel...
Stem cells Can Generate Organs In Labs

Limb Regeneration In Humans: A Future Possibility

until the age of about six months. Adult frogs retain the capacity and salamanders can even grow new tails and limbs when severed. According to Prof Amaya, humans most likely lose this perfect healing capacity with age, because it is important to hea...
Successful creation of human embryos from a single parent for the first time
...ful in creating so-called parthenotes, early-stage embryos
that are made from a single egg, without the need for sperm. The researchers have so far created six parthenotes by taking donated eggs from women who were undergoing sterilization. The eggs were given an electric shock to make them divide. Parthen...

in scientific research. Previous attempts at creating the nerve cells have produced contaminated samples that have not been scientifically useful. Robert Meadowcroft, of the Parkinson's disease Society, welcomed the news: "The purity of these cells...
