Scientists rid stem cell culture of key animal cells

...onic stem cells to differentiate appear to inhibit differentiation in mouse embryonic stem cells. Aside from feeder cells, two other sources of animal material remain in stem cell culture materials. One, Matrigel, is a product that is essentially a plate-coating matrix of cells extracted from mouse tumors. Serum re...

UCSD researchers maintain stem cells without contaminated animal feeder layers

...viously been shown to modulate cellular growth and differentiation in human pancreatic cells. Human embryonic stem cells cultured for several weeks under these conditions showed no change in cell form and structure. The team then eliminated each factor and pluripotency was assessed.

UCSD team discovers specialized, rare heart stem cells in newborns

...UCSD) School of Medicine. The cells are capable of differentiation into fully mature heart tissue. Called isl1+ cells, these cardiac progenitor cells are stem cells that have been programmed to form heart muscle during fetal growth. Until this new discovery, the cells were thought to be absent after birth. However,...

New tumor-suppressor gene discovered

...revealed that the mats gene is required for normal differentiation of eye cells during the development of the fly's eye. Lai's team also tackled the tough challenge of discovering how the mats gene is able to suppress the growth of tumors. "We did not find many clues when we compared the sequence of the mats gene w...

Scientists generate patient-specific stem cells, Science study says
