September 17, 2010 | Pluripotent Stem Cells

By Stuart P. Atkinson

DNA looping to allow proximity of enhancers and promoter sequences has been suggested as a means to regulate gene expression, but the mechanisms by which this occurs and the factors involved are still to be fully understood. However an advance online publication from Nature uncovers a mechanism by which DNA-looping-mediated regulation of gene expression...

Know which way to miRoam: Red means ‘GO’, Green ‘STOP’!

By Carla B. Mellough

Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC) are shown to have many of the characteristics of human embryonic stem cells (hESC) including prolonged proliferative capacity and differentiation across all germ layers. The therapeutic potential of human iPSC (hiPSC),...

In the mid 1930’s the unlikely collaborators aviator Charles Lindberg and maverick surgeon Alexis Carrel, were the first to sustain whole organs outside the body for extended periods using their newly invented glass perfusion pumps. Arguably the unique methods set out by the pair including the anastomy (suturing) of even the most miniscule blood vessels and...

From Cell Stem Cell

Research published in the 6th August edition of Cell Stem Cell suggests that human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) and human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) may be more similar than previously thought. This research, from the laboratory of...

August 13, 2010 | Limbal Stem Cells

From Nature

The long term success of limbal stem cell (LSC) therapy to treat blindness has been highlighted in an article from Nature News & Views. LSCs reside in the narrow zone between the cornea and conjunctiva and are essential for corneal clarity and the efficient...
