  • HES1 had been previously shown to block the differentiation of stem cells to myeloid progeny, and indeed the researchers were able to boost stem and progenitor cell numbers in cultured cord blood by overexpressing HES1 in combination with SR1 treatment 25-fold, recapitulating the effect seen with Delta1. (fredhutch.org)

  • We are delighted to initiate this partnership with the Cord Blood Association," said Anthony Atala, M.D., Editor-in-Chief of STEM CELLS Translational Medicine and Director of the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine. (prweb.com)
  • pathways
  • In the study, published online July 31, 2018, in Cell Research , researchers zeroed in on a protein that affects multiple targets and pathways involved in hematopoietic stem cell self-renewal, a broader approach than other studies that focus on a single target or pathway in the process. (news-medical.net)
  • Such efforts require a deeper understanding of the cell biology of HSC and HPC, the microenvironment that nurtures these cells, and greater mechanistic insight into cell surface receptors and intracellular signaling pathways regulating HSC/HPC function. (stembook.org)
  • disorders
  • As all these effects were accompanied by a temporal but significant improvement in motor coordination, HuUCBMCs grafts can be considered as an effective cell replacement therapy for cerebellar disorders. (hindawi.com)
  • adult
  • When the team knocked out Ythdf2 function in a mouse model or knocked down Ythdf2 function in hUCB cells, they observed increased expression of these transcription factors and expansion of hematopoietic stem cells, which are the major type of adult stem cells in hUCB. (news-medical.net)
  • Since the Ythdf2 protein is present in different kinds of adult stem cells, targeting it and how it affects hematopoietic stem cells seemed a safer approach and, if it worked, broadly applicable. (news-medical.net)
  • Human hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) are defined by their ability to differentiate into all blood lineages and to self-renew to sustain hematopoiesis throughout adult life. (bloodjournal.org)
  • In comparison, adult stem cells have a limited range of cell types which they can yield. (wdxcyber.com)
  • However, recent research has shown that some adult cells may be able to generate different types of tissues under appropriate conditions in order to increase their medical potential. (wdxcyber.com)

  • The origins of stem cell research can be traced back to the mid nineteenth century, when scientists first began to regard cells as the foundation for human life. (wdxcyber.com)
  • However, it has only been in the last decade that interest in stem cell research has exploded. (wdxcyber.com)
  • In addition, one major controversy in stem cell research is the combination of stem cell research and cloning technology. (wdxcyber.com)
  • Known as somatic cell nuclear transfer, this process is highly controversial due to both medical and ethical concerns and is illegal in the United States, the United Kingdom and Australia, where any research involving human cloning is prohibited. (wdxcyber.com)
  • Alternatively, individuals and groups who support embryonic stem cell research believe that the benefits of stem cell research are fundamental and therefore should continue to be explored in a more comprehensive manner. (wdxcyber.com)
