Pharmacological Reprogramming of Fibroblasts into Neural Stem Cells by Signaling-Directed Transcriptional Activation

Bhaskar Chanda Stem Cell Zhang et al. identified a cocktail of nine components that can efficiently reprogram defined mouse fibroblasts into tripotent neural stem cell-like cells and revealed that this reprogramming process involves transcriptional activation of key neurogenic regulators downstream of reprogramming signaling. 13 more words


Genome Editing of Lineage Determinants in Human Pluripotent Stem Cells Reveals Mechanisms of Pancreatic Development and Diabetes

Bhaskar Chanda Stem Cell By combining genome editing and hPSC-directed differentiation, Zhu and colleagues systematically examined eight transcription factors for their roles in pancreatic development. Their study not only verified conserved gene requirements between mice and humans but also revealed a number of previously unsuspected and potentially human-specific features. 13 more words
