Brief reviews of recently published articles, organized by stem cell type.

April 16, 2017 | NSCs/NPCs

A simple and animal-free platform may boost the clinical application of neural cells differentiated from human induced pluripotent stem cells

April 16, 2017 | ESCs/iPSCs

A new study indicates that the timing of the in vitro differentiation of pluripotent stem cells reflects species-specific rates of development

April 9, 2017 | Direct Reprogramming

A new study suggests that directly reprogrammed Schwann cells boast a similar regenerative activity to primary Schwann cells derived from patients

April 9, 2017 | Mammalian Regeneration

A new study indicates that macrophages promote contact between distant non-immune color-bearing cells to control tissue remodeling

April 2, 2017 | ESCs/iPSCs

A new study describes a quick and efficient means to generate, gene-edit, and differentiate induced pluripotent stem cells in order to study rare neurodevelopmental disorders

April 2, 2017 | Haematopoetic Stem Cells

Studies into the role of the non-canonical NF-κB signaling pathway provide unexpected findings and new insight into the regulation of the hematopoiesis and bone marrow failure

March 27, 2017 | NSCs/NPCs

A new study suggests that the blood anticoagulant factor Pros1 also plays a dual role as a regulator of neural stem cell quiescence and cell fate determination.

March 27, 2017 | ESCs/iPSCs

A new study shows that the loss of a single microRNA is sufficient to endow mouse pluripotent stem cells with totipotent characteristics

March 20, 2017 | Mesenchymal Stem Cells

A new study demonstrates that a metalloproteinase secreted by mesenchymal stem cells can effectively degrade the -synuclein aggregates associated with Parkinson’s Disease

March 20, 2017 | ESCs/iPSCs

A new study describes a new synthetic hybrid molecule that can selectively target and eliminate pluripotent cells and reduce the tumorigenic threat of cell transplantation strategies
