Stem cells turned into complex, functioning intestinal tissue in lab

CINCINNATI -- For the first time, scientists have created functioning human intestinal tissue in the laboratory from pluripotent stem cells. In a study posted online Dec. 12 by Nature, scientists from Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center...

Researchers at UC Riverside find solution to cell death problem vexing...

RIVERSIDE, Calif. -- Human pluripotent stem (hPS) cells can generate any given cell type in the adult human body, which is why they are of interest to stem cell scientists working on finding therapies for spinal cord injuries, Parkinson's dis...

Induced pluripotent stem cell retain an inactivated X chromosome

Female induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells, reprogrammed from human skin cells into cells that have the embryonic-like potential to become any cell in the body, retain an inactive X chromosome, stem cell researchers at UCLA have found. The findi...

Gene targeting technique extended to stem cells

The technique that helped revolutionize modern biology by making the mouse a crucible of genetic manipulation and a window to human disease has been extended to human embryonic stem (ES) cells. In a study published today (Feb. 10) in the online editions of the journal Nature Biotechnology, a team of scientists from UW-Madison reports that it has developed methods for recombining segments of DNA within stem cells.
