The capacity for self-renewal and the pluripotency of ESCs is known to be controlled by the transcription factors, Nanog homeobox (NANOG), octamer binding transcription factor-4 (OCT4) and sex determining region-Y box-2 (SOX2), and signaling pathways like leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF)-signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (STAT3) and bone morphogenic protein (BMP)-Mothers against decapentaplegic homolog (SMAD) 1/4/5/8 (Rodda et al.
Sharpening the saw is about self-renewal and enlarging both our capacity for action and our circle of influence.
In particular, prolonged fasting reduced the enzyme PKA, an effect previously discovered by the Longo team to extend longevity in simple organisms and which has been linked in other research to the regulation of stem cell self-renewal and pluripotency -- that is, the potential for one cell to develop into many different cell types.
Some cells in the new population were stem cells that were capable of self-renewal.
Very recently, studies by Lonardo and colleagues showed that the Nodal/activin signaling axis drives the self-renewal of pancreatic CSCs, which is not exclusively autocrine but rather relies on an intricate interplay between pancreatic stellate cells as a supportive environment and CSCs (4).
Xi said the campaign should focus on self-purification, self-perfection, self-renewal and self-progression.
Spermatogonial stem cells (SSCs) provide the foundation for spermatogenesis that begins with self-renewal and differentiation of spermatogonial stem cells (SSCs) (1).
The first volume begins with explanation of advances in the field as well as definitions, criteria and standards for 'stemness,' the molecular circuitry underlying pluripotency in embryonic stem cells and iPS cells, and mechanisms of stem cell self-renewal.
Singapore, Mar 1, 2012 - (ACN Newswire) - A*STAR scientists have for the first time, identified that precise regulation of polyamine levels is critical for embryonic stem cell (ESC) self-renewal - the ability of ESCs to divide indefinitely - and directed differentiation.
The balance between self-renewal and differentiation is what generates, and then maintains, tissues enabling them to respond to injury or other stressors.
Our research offers the first evidence that the spinal cord meninges, the system of membranes which cover the surface of the brain and the spinal cord, contains stem cells which are capable of self-renewal and proliferation," explain authors Ilaria Decimo and Francesco Bifari of the University of Verona (Italy).
The transplanted material seemed to kick the stem cells to a high gear for self-renewal, essentially taking over the production of muscle cells," he said.
