Master regulatory gene of epithelial stem cells identified

...rge Higginson professor of cell biology at HMS, to show that p63’s key function was to provide the enhanced potential of stem cells to divide. "The fact that p63 is essential for these epithelial stem cells, while other master regulators have been identified for blood stem cells and spermatocyte stem...

Thymus transplants gives hope to babies with fatal immune disease

..., published Tuesday, May 15, in the journal Blood, show that 75 percent of the babies who received a thymus transplant were alive after one year.

Sheehan raises Lygus bugs, a secondary pest of cotton, and confines their feeding to certain parts of cotton plants using bug cages. The amount of damage they inflict on cotton fruit and...

Growing nerve cells in 3-D dramatically affects gene expression
