Harvard stem cell scientists have a new theory for how stem cells decide whether to become liver or pancreatic cells during development. A cell's fate, the researchers found, is determined by the nearby presence of prostaglandin E2,... Read Post

Keeping Stem Cells From Changing Fates

Health : Medical News Today (4 years ago)

Johns Hopkins researchers have determined why certain stem cells are able to stay stem cells. The report in the June 4 issue of Cell Stem Cell reveals that an enzyme that changes the way DNA is packaged in cells allows specific gene... Read Post

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

Academics / General Science : Science Daily (3 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
