UCSD researchers maintain stem cells without contaminated animal feeder layers

...te. Currently, stem cell lines derived from human embryos are grown and nourished in petri dish material called feeder layers that are made with animal connective tissue, primarily mouse and calf. A recent study in Nature Medicine** by UCSD's Ajit Varki, M.D. showed that human embryonic stem cells grown in ...

...y that an avian influenza virus would be lethal to embryos in the eggs. The vaccine strategy pursued by Protein Sciences, known commercially as FluBlok, does not rely on whole vaccine virus. It uses a purified concentration of a key molecule on the surface of the virus, called hemagglutinin, to elicit an im...

Stem Cell Research Shows Potential for Replacing Tissue Damaged in Heart Attacks

... the embryo itself. In research conducted on chick embryos since 1992, his team discovered that a group of very young embryonic cells called “precardiac endoderm?sends strong signals that cause adjacent cells in the embryo to become cardiac myocytes. Based on this finding, Dr. Lough reasoned that precardiac ...

Researchers find new genes necessary to make embryo

...letely sequenced and a model organism to study how embryos develop. Using RNA interference (RNAi), a method for identifying the function of genes, the researchers almost double previous estimates of how many genes are required to make an embryo. Their study focused on the genes expressed by the mother and im...
