When it Comes to Regrowing Tails, Neural Stem Cells Are the Key

Health Sciences at the University of Pittsburgh

It’s a longstanding mystery why salamanders can perfectly regenerate their tails whereas lizard tails grow back all wrong. By transplanting neural stem cells between species, Pitt researchers have discovered that the lizard’s native stem cells are the primary factor hampering tail regeneration.

Research Identifies New Treatment Targets in Breast Cancer

Huntsman Cancer Institute at the University of Utah

- Scientists at Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI) at the University of Utah (U of U), in collaboration with the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, have generated the first single cell resolution atlas of genes that control the formation of breast tissue. The atlas provides a comprehensive molecular map that will be used to help researchers understand how breast cancers form and to pinpoint new ways to prevent, diagnose, and treat the disease.

Created Line of Spinal Cord Neural Stem Cells Shows Diverse Promise

University of California San Diego Health

Researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine report that they have successfully created spinal cord neural stem cells (NSCs) from human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs) that differentiate into a diverse population of cells capable of dispersing throughout the spinal cord and can be maintained for long periods of time.

Researchers Characterize “Mutational Burden” of Human Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells

University of California San Diego Health

In a new study, published in this week’s issue of Cell Reports, researchers at the University of California San Diego School of Medicine scrutinized the whole genome sequences of 18 induced pluripotent stem cell lines derived from skin cells that they had reprogrammed to identify and characterize somatic mutations.
