Wisconsin scientists grow critical nerve cells

...wn the correct developmental pathway. "You need to teach the [embryonic stem cells] to change step by step, where each step has different conditions and a strict window of time," says Zhang. "Otherwise, it just won't work." To differentiate into a functional spinal motor neuron, the stem cells advanced th...

U-M scientist to talk about tissue engineering at AAAS

Scientists have a pretty good handle on how to teach human cells to do tricks in a laboratory---things like getting soft cells from the mouth's lining to form bone. But in the real world, accomplishing such feats is more complex. Regenerating the jaw bone of a person undergoing radiation therapy for c...

Jefferson Virologists Coax HIV Out of Hiding

... an unknown viral reservoir in the blood. “IL-7may teach us something,?he says. “We’re not sure why only thesecertain strains are affected. We think we’ve found a new population, anew reservoir of HIV that has not been seen before. It’s probably asub-population of blood cells, lymphocytes not stimulated by...

Birds brains reveal source of songs

...al ganglia circuit, so birds may have something to teach us about our own brains and what we learn may eventually apply to human diseases that affect motor abilities, such as Parkinson's disease. "The question we're trying to answer is how a young bird learns its song," says Professor Michale Fee of MIT's...

Mouse gene shows new mechanism behind cardiac infarction in man

...nbiased genetic strategy based on a mice model can teach us more about common human diseases,?says researcher Jacob Lagercrantz of the Gustav V research institute, Karolinska Institutet.

"They can provide solutions for more efficient manufacturing and design of materials with new capabilities, for example. ...

Regenerating worms help elucidate stem cell biology

...cell biology. "I think they probably have a lot to teach us about how a population of stem cells is being regulated in vivo, rather than in a Petri dish," he said. So Sánchez Alvarado and his colleagues set out to understand exactly how neoblasts carry out the remarkable maintenance and recreation of ...

Web model of influenza-host lifecycles will aid scientists in creating anti-viral drugs

... part of a project called Reactome, is intended to teach scientists about parts of the influenza lifecycle they might not be familiar with, and to help researchers look at specific reactions and figure out ways to block them. "Understanding how influenza reacts with its host is really critical for the rat...
