MU researchers to study the status of black bears in Missouri

...s this summer, they will extract DNA from the hair follicles and use that DNA to estimate the number of bears, the gender ratio of male to female bears, where the bears are migrating from and if they are reproducing. “This study is a good example of the use of cutting-edge molecular biology in the manageme...

First demonstration of new hair follicle generation in an animal model

Stem cells found in adult hair follicles may provide alternative to embryonic stem cells

...al crest stem cells are found in the bulge of hair follicles and have characteristics that combine some advantages of embryonic and adult stem cells, according to lead researcher, Maya Sieber-Blum, Ph.D., professor of cell biology, neurobiology & anatomy. Similar to embryonic stem cells, they have a high d...

New technology addresses female fertility preservation

Bedsores and bald hides: Novel roles revealed for a 'scaffolding' protein

...fficient hair growth. When cells of normal hair follicles die, they follow a specific and genetically controlled death program. The team found that the K17 cytoskeleton protein is required to physically interact with a protein that is known to activate cell death and prevent follicle cells from dying before...

A surprising pair of proteins help make healthy eggs

... mice. Without this protein, egg-producing ovarian follicles didn't develop properly. The result: infertile mice. The new research underscores TAF4b's central role in normal reproduction. The Brown and Berkeley team found that in the granulosa cells of the ovary, it triggers production of another protein, cal...

USC researchers track down the stem cells that create feathers

...taking the purported stem cells from quail-feather follicles and transplanting them into a chicken host. (Quail cells can be differentiated from chicken cells by cellular markers.) This demonstrated that only the labeled cells were pluripotent. These stem cells, the researchers found, are well protected in th...
