Stem cell researcher Hans Scholer at the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Biomedicine and his team took skin cells from mice and, using a unique combination of growth factors while ensuring appropriate culturing conditions, have managed to induce the cells' differentiation into neuronal somatic stem cells
Making full use of its in-house resources, Stelic is placing top priority on its strategy of patenting of somatic stem cell
therapeutic concepts and expanding the scope of associated patents with the objective of achieving market expansion.
When the somatic stem cells
were destroyed, the hub cells cranked up their machinery for cell division.
Somatic stem cells
can be isolated from a mammalian lung and made to differentiate into various lung cell types, he reported.
Studies which link fetal exposure to toxicants or other substances affecting somatic stem cells
that later populate organs such as the mammary gland, the prostate gland and the lung, and that have cancer as the endpoint, are sought by the NCI.
Hence loss of regenerative function and propensity to contract cancers can be interpreted as harbingers of ageing at the level of somatic stem cells
When they finally figured out a way to kill all of the somatic stem cells
, they thought that the rest of the tissue would probably just empty out.
Offerings include embryonic stem cells and somatic stem cells
from various species, along with their genetically modified derivatives.
During the study, researchers looked at fruit fly testes where two different stem cells exist: germline stem cells which give rise to sperm, and somatic stem cells
which develop into non-reproductive cell types.
This collection of nine papers describes aspects of stem cell research, including the application of stem cells and progenitor cells and vascular diseases, gas transcription factors and T cell development from hematopoietic stem cells, protein tyrosine phosphatase Shp-5 in cyyokine signaling and stem cell regulation, stem cells for neural tissue engineering, natural stem cell niche-dependency, potential applications of human umbilical cord stem cells in Whartons's jelly for the treatment of Parkinson's Disease, human oogenesis and follicular retrieval from ovarian somatic stem cells
and applications of gastric stem cells and the use of fibrocytes, mesenchymal stem cells and monocytes in research.
