Only A Few Differentiating Factors Between Adult And Stem Cells
...rchers said the newly formed cells called "induced pluripotent
stem cells" (iPS) behaved physically and genetical...tients." Those problems could be circumvented if pluripotent
cells could be obtained directly from the patients' own cells. "We have demonstrated that pluripot...
Human Embryonic Stem Cells Could Be Later Used In Therapeutic Cloning
...esearch has inherent characteristics which make it pluripotent
and totipotent. This sets aside the embryonic stem cell from that of the other normal adult cells. These characteristics could be later used to replace diseased or damaged cells with healthy cells. The study results were published in the journal Ge...
Importance of Gene in Eye Development
... either differentiate into neurons, or stay in the pluripotent
state. In the pluripotent
state, the cells are constantly replenished, but each cell retains the ability to differentiate into...
Mobilizing Stem Cells at the Injured Site Using Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatments.
...ells are progenitor cells which are totipotent and pluripotent
meaning that they have the ability to differentiate into any type of cell. They are very important in the time of injury repair. Stem cells are mainly present only in the bone marrow of the human beings. When an injury occurs these cells are trans...
Stem Cells From Hair Follicle To Repair Nerve Damage
...rce of relatively abundant and accessible, active, pluripotent
adult stem cells, said the researchers. In earlier studies, the team led by Robert Hoffman, a professor at the University of California, San Diego, has induced hair follicle stem cells to differentiate into blood vessel cells and neurons. The resear...
The potent anti-leukemia activity of Berbamine
Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) is a pluripotent
hematopoietic stem cell disorder characterized by accumulation of mature and immature granulocytes in peripheral blood and bone marrow due to uncontrolled growth // and resistance to apoptosis. The dysregulated activity of the bcr/abl oncoprotein ty...
Its Possible To Grow Bone To Replace The Damaged Bone
... but the inside is covered with a layer of special pluripotent
cells which, like marrow cells, are capable of transforming into the different types of skeletal tissue. So Shastri and his collaborators decided to create the bioreactor space just under this outer layer. They created the space by making a tiny hol...
