New hair growth mechanism discovered

Added: 25.05.2017 17:56 | 2 views | 0 comments

Regulatory T cells (Tregs; pronounced 'tee-regs'), a type of immune cell generally associated with controlling inflammation, directly trigger stem cells in the skin to promote healthy hair growth, researchers have discovered. Without these immune cells as partners, the researchers found, the stem cells cannot regenerate hair follicles, leading to baldness.

Robust, high-throughput protocol for deriving microglia from human stem cells reported

Added: 19.05.2017 18:31 | 7 views | 0 comments

A robust, efficient method for deriving microglia, the immune cells of the brain, from human stem cells has been developed by researchers. This new protocol now enables scientists around the world to generate this critical cell type from individual patients and improve our understanding of the role of microglia neurological malfunction.

Epigenetic program leading to vessel differentiation

Added: 19.05.2017 18:08 | 10 views | 0 comments

Clarification of how human blood vessels are constructed is desperately needed to advance regenerative medicine. Researchers investigated the changes in gene functions that occur when stem cells become vascular cells. They found that the histone code, which alters the transcriptional state of the gene, changes over time as stem cells differentiate into blood vessels in response to a stimulus.
