The modeling technique is based on methods previously developed by Breneman's group for rapidly predicting the effi...

U-M scientists discover identifying markers for primitive blood-forming stem cells

..., these new markers could dramatically enhance the purification of such cells, potentially making bone marrow transplants safer and more effective," says Morrison, who adds that Kiel and Yilmaz have already started tests to look for them. Toshide Iwashita, M.D., Ph.D., a former research fellow in Morrison's labo...

Sperm stem cells closer to being like embryonic stem cells

Other UT Southwestern researchers involved with the work were Dr. Robert Hammer, professor of biochemistry and in the Green Center, and research technicians Karen Chapman, Derek N...

Plants give pests sock in the gut

...at the site for several days. "Upon isolation and purification of the enzyme, we found that Mir1-CP binds to chitin, a major component of insects and fungi," says Luthe. "Physiological tests show that caterpillars have impaired nutrient utilization when they eat the enzyme. They just can't convert what they eat ...

Earth Rx: A microbial biotechnology prescription for global environmental health

...ges to the environmental health of society. Water purification alone is becoming more problematic in the world due to our increasingly reliance on contaminated sources, such as polluted rivers, lakes and groundwater. "All of these issues are closely interrelated," says Bruce Rittmann, director of the Center for...

Polymer aids in blood clotting, pointing way to new treatment
