Unlocking Stem Cell, DNA Secrets To Speed Therapies

ScienceDaily - October 11, 2008 - In a groundbreaking study led by a molecular biologist at Florida State University, researchers have discovered that as embryonic stem cells turn into different cell types, there are dramatic corresponding changes to the order in which DNA is replicated and reorganized.

The findings bridge a critical knowledge gap for stem cell biologists, enabling them to better understand ...

Macarthur Foundation fellow

One of the winners of a Macarthur grant is doing some interesting work with neural stem cells.

Sally Temple is a developmental neuroscientist who traces the mechanisms by which embryonic progenitor cells divide into highly specialized neurons and support cells.

...

Recently, Temple has shown that progenitor cells gradually lose their capacity to divide into cell types that normally form the earliest cortical layers; this effect can be ...

stem cell drug hopes

Stem Cell Drug Hopes
Posted on: Wednesday, 3 September 2008, 18:00 CDT

SCIENTISTS have designed stem cell tools to aid the development of drugs to fight brain disorders like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.

The breakthrough was announced today by a team of scientists from Durham University and the North East England Stem Cell Institute (NESCI).

They have developed and tested two synthetic molecules which can be used to coax stem cells into transforming into other forms ...

Question re: stem cell therapies-

For those who understand these therapies...
It seems to me that it would be essential to stop or slow the immune process involved in MS first, before receiving a stem cell transplant- like the StonyBrook or Canadian trials. I read about folks going to Costa Rica or Taiwan and spending thousands of dollars in the hopes of "curing" their MS, but I wonder how this could be of any help, since the B and T ...

MIT identifies cells for spinal-cord repair

MIT identifies cells for spinal-cord repair
Could lead to nonsurgical treatment for injuries

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — A researcher at MIT's Picower Institute for Learning and Memory has pinpointed stem cells within the spinal cord that, if persuaded to differentiate into more healing cells and fewer scarring cells following an injury, may lead to a new, non-surgical treatment for debilitating spinal-cord injuries.

The work, reported in the July issue of the journal PLoS (Public Library of ...
