KDM4A and KDM4C histone demethylases directs the mechanism that directs stem cells to mature into endothelial cells

University of Illinois at Chicago says that a molecular mechanism that directs embryonic stem cells to mature into endothelial cells — the specialized cells that form blood vessels — has been discovered by researchers. 225 more words


By mixing cells with a liquid and fill them into bioreactors, they can control the nutrient and substance levels to create neuronal stem cells which become cells for Parkinson's patients

University of Luxembourg says that the progressive loss of neurons in the brain of Parkinson’s patients is slow yet inexorable. So far, there are no drugs that can halt this insidious process. 226 more words

Generation of Cynomolgus Monkey Chimeric Fetuses using Embryonic Stem Cells

Bhaskar Chanda Stem Cell Chen etĀ al. showed that it is feasible to generate chimeric monkeys with contribution in all three germ layers using culture-induced naive-like state embryonic stem cells, opening up new avenues for the use of non-human primate models to study both pluripotency and human disease. 12 more words
