Skin Tissue Produced From Stem Cells

Posted by maxi@stemsave.com on Sep 15, 2016 8:47:08 PM

Scientists from the RIKEN Center for Developmental Biology in Japan have recently grown skin tissue from transformed stem cells. Their work demonstrated an advancement from previous efforts to grow skin in that the transplanted stem cells developed as integumentary tissue – the tissue between the outer and inner skin, which holds the functional properties of the skin, including sweat glands and hair follicles.

Drug Testing Against Cancer Using Stem Cells

Posted by artgreco@stemsave.com on Aug 8, 2016 4:51:43 PM

Researchers at Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center have developed a system that uses differentiated human stem cells to expedite the testing of existing drugs that might work against rare cancers. By transforming human stem cells into an aggressive form of pediatric brain cancer, medulloblastoma, they can be compared to cancer cells already tested against existing drugs.

Liver Treatment Improved by Advance in Stem Cell Differentiation.

Posted by hunter@stemsave.com on Apr 30, 2015 11:36:20 AM

Recently published research out of South Korea has presented a new method of differentiating mesenchymal stem cells [MSCs] into liver cells for autologous use in regenerative medicine.  Geneticists found that the overexpression of two genes within MSCs, oct4 and sox2, resulted in the stem cells converting into fully functional hepatocytes, or liver cells, capable of producing urea and storing glycogen.

Under Pressure – Stem Cell Differentiation Triggered by Mechanical Force.

Posted by pamela@stemsave.com on Apr 2, 2015 11:12:16 AM

Bioengineers from the University of California, San Diego, have identified a mechanism by which stem cell differentiation is regulated by the exertion of mechanical pressure.  Using optical tweezers to apply mechanical force to stem cells, the researchers, led by Dr. Yingxiao Wang, observed the release of calcium ions, which are critical in the cellular communication required for stem cell differentiation.  Dr. Wang’s team concluded that the forces of a stem cell’s environment, such as the tension inside the jaw, can promote the cell’s maturation into stiff tissue like bone or cartilage.
