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

...nnsylvania School of Medicine have found that hair follicles in adult mice regenerate by re-awakening genes onc...area of injury. Unexpectedly, the regenerated hair follicles originated from non-hair-follicle stem cells. “We’ve found that we can influence wound healing wi...

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

...his delay of treatment is not an option. Immature follicles (the female egg and surrounding somatic cells) can...three-dimensional culture system that encapsulates follicles and allows immature eggs to grow and mature in vitro. (A follicle is a small spherical group of spec...

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...

First frozen egg baby born in Canada

... insemination (IUI). Because she produced too many follicles in her ovaries, the treatment cycle had to be cancelled because of a high risk of multiple-fetal pregnancy. As an alternative treatment, she had eggs collected from her ovaries, which were then frozen in liquid nitrogen at ?96ºC. After a period of tw...

Hirsute Or Hairless? Two Proteins May Spell The Difference
