Mouse Ovary Tissue and Eggs Engineered from Cells

In the context of ongoing work on the beneficial effects of young ovaries in old mice, it is interesting to note that researchers have now managed to engineer functional mouse ovary tissue that produces eggs. The starting point was a cell sample, converted into induced pluripotent stem cells. It is a good example of the current state of the art in tissue engineering, in which many types of correctly functioning organ tissue can be produced in small amounts given just a small patient tissue sample to work with.
