A new type of neural stem cells from blood cells has been created

Scientists from the German Cancer Research Center (Deutsches Krebsforschungszentrum, DKFZ) and the stem cell institute HI-STEM in Heidelberg for the first time successfully reprogrammed human blood cells into a previously unknown type of neural stem cells.

BRD9 Protein Keeps Embryonic Stem Cell Pluripotency

Embryonic stem cells (ESCs) have enormous potential – they can become cells of any type of body tissue. However, as soon as they begin to specialize in order to give rise to certain types of tissue, they lose their unlimited possibilities.

The protein produced by bees retains the pluripotency of stem cells in mice

The active protein component of royal jelly helps the bees to grow new queens. Scientists from Stanford discovered a similar protein in mammals that is able to preserve the pluripotency of embryonic stem cell culture.

Platelets grown from stem cells can replace donor material

Japanese researchers have developed a method for growing human platelets from stem cells in the laboratory. Scientists hope that the created platelets may eventually reduce the dependence on the donor material of cancer patients and patients with other diseases.

Unique type of skeletal stem cells found in bones

Scientists have discovered in the growth plate of bone a new type of stem cells, which forming bones, cartilage and tissue of the spongy or cancellous portions of bones, containing bone marrow. Prepared reserves of these cells can one day help doctors restore or replace cartilage in the joints, heal fractures faster, build up bone tissue in osteoporosis, and even grow new bones and cartilage for plastic surgery.
