Wisconsin scientists grow critical nerve cells

...l. The spinal motor neuron cells have survived in culture in the lab for more than three months, says Xuejun Li, an assistant scientist in Zhang's group, and the lead author of the study. To determine the exact recipe for motor neuron growth, Li foraged labs worldwide to obtain the growth factors and other...

"This implies that the isl1+ cells potentially could be harvested from an individual's heart tissue, multiplied in a laboratory setting, then re-implanted into the patient. Furthermore, the developmental lineage marker which i...

How an AIDS-Related Cancer Unleashes Inflammation

...blood vessels that KS produces," he said. In cell culture studies, the researchers found evidence of an “activation loop,?by which kaposin B activation of MK2 promotes even further MK2 activity by other proteins. The over-production of cytokines resulting from kaposin B's binding to MK2 creates inflammation...
