University of Manchester makes made-to-measure skin and bones a reality using inkjet printers

...ures,known as 'tissue scaffolds'. The shape of the scaffold determines theshape of the tissue as it grows. The structures are created by printingvery thin layers of a material repeatedly on top of each other untilthe structure is built. Each layer is just 10 microns thick (1,000layers equals 1cm in thickness)...

U-M scientist to talk about tissue engineering at AAAS

...amaged too badly to simply heal on its own. A tiny scaffold helps direct the engineered cells to the right place, then dissolves once the cells begin to generate to fill in the wound. "In certain kinds of defects, the body cannot heal itself and the body needs a jumpstart," Krebsbach said. To heal a large wo...

Promising new West Nile therapy cures disease in mice

...ntibody that cripples the West Nile virus into the scaffold of a human antibody. The monoclonal antibody was several hundred times more potent in cell culture tests than antibodies obtained from people who had recovered from West Nile virus infection. ...

Protein helps regulate the genes of embryonic stem cells

...roteins that group together to provide a molecular scaffold supporting the roughly 35,000 genes in the nucleus of every human cell. Histone modifications affect gene activity and include methylation, in which a methyl component is attached to the histone protein. The prevailing model is that methylation on h...

Discovery of New Dopamine Action May Yield Alternative Psychiatric Drugs

... in slow synaptic transmission here by acting as a scaffold for signaling molecules in response to dopamine receptor activation," Caron said. "The observations also provide an alternative pathway by which dopamine receptor activation leads to the expression of dopamine-associated behaviors." The findings re...

Modified collagen could yield important medical applications

...omotes blood clotting and provides the sponge-like scaffold upon which cells build nerves, bones and skin. Because it is non-toxic, dissolves naturally over time and rarely triggers rejection, collagen is commonly used in cosmetics, drug delivery systems and biocompatible coatings.

Anthrax inhibitors identified by Burnham team

...laboratory, the scientists were able to identify a scaffold that served as a template for designing a preferred structure for small-molecule inhibitors of LF. Lead compounds were synthesized and validated as highly potent and selective against LF in vitro. In in vitro assays, the compounds did not affect prot...

New complete muscle grown in the lab

...y seeding a sponge-like, three-dimensional plastic scaffold with myoblasts and endothelial cells, which are the precursors to mature skeletal muscle and blood vessel cells. The researchers also added connective tissue cells called fibroblasts to the mix as a crucial third ingredient. "The idea is that this h...

Scientists discover stem cell origin of neck and shoulders

...bellished and filled by other cells: just like the scaffold of a house which is later filled in by bricks, mortar and windows. If cells are from the same stem cell origin they 'stick together' throughout their life ?normally without us noticing it." As the joining points between muscles and bones have surviv...

BioGlass is a porous material, with a variety of different size pores able to trap different size proteins. They found BioGlass induced the crystallisation of the largest number of proteins ever...

Manchester scientists create new bio-gel for 3D cell culture
