Investigated a new pathway of control the aging process with the help of stem cells

Researchers from The University of California, Berkeley, US, have discovered a new molecular pathway that have crucial role in the aging process. They showed that when decelerating activity of mitochondria in mouse blood stem cells increased stress resistance of cells and rejuvenates old blood. Results are published March 20, 2015 in the journal Science.

Chemicals make adult cells act like stem cells

Reprogramming adult cells into stem cells has become a great aim since so-called induced pluripotent (iPS) cells were first investigated in 2006. However it is a well-known fact that using gene manipulations to achieve this aim can be dangerous due to possible mutations or cancer Recently researchers have found a way to solve the problem.
