Determining a stem cell's fate: Biologists scour mouse genome for genes and markers that lead to T cells

Academics / General Science : Science Daily (2 years ago)

What happens to a stem cell at the molecular level that causes it to become one type of cell rather than another? In studies that mark a major step forward in our understanding of stem cells' fates, scientists have traced the stepwi... Read Post

Sugar mimics guide stem cells toward neural fate

Academics / General Science : Science Codex (20 hours ago)

Embryonic stem cells can develop into a multitude of cells types. Researchers would like to understand how to channel that development into the specific types of mature cells that make up the organs and other structures of living or... Read Post

Sugar mimics guide stem cells toward neural fate

Academics / General Science : Science Daily (14 hours ago)

Many growth factors that influence the fate of embryonic stem cells must bind to sugars attached to specific receptors on the surface of the cell to work. Because the sugars are difficult to manipulate, biochemists created synthetic... Read Post
