Deletion of a Stem Cell Factor Promotes TBI Recovery in Mice

esearchers found that conditional deletion of Sox2 – the gene encoding the SOX2 stem cell transcription factor – and the associated dampening of astrocyte reactivity appear to promote functional recovery, including behavioral recovery, after traumatic brain injury, said Dr. Zhang, a W.W. Caruth, Jr. Scholar in Biomedical Research.

Finding a Key to Unlock Blocked Differentiation in Microrna-Deficient Embryonic Stem Cells

RS19342_RuiZhao-7-scr.jpg

In a study published in Stem Cell Reports, Rui Zhao and colleagues have partly solved a long-unanswered basic question about stem cells — why are pluripotent stem cells that have mutations to block the production of microRNAs unable to differentiate?

Nitric Oxide Production in Patients is Critical for Stem Cell Function

Nathan Bryan, PH.D., one of the nation’s leading experts on critically important role of nitric oxide in health and disease prevention, told attendees of the Pacific Regenerative Medicine 2017 Conference this morning that, “Stem cells are the future of medicine and are required for our body to heal itself; however, their success depends on the body producing enough nitric oxide to support their healing properties. Simply, put, without the right amount of NO in the body, our own stem cells fail to function and furthermore, those receiving stem cell therapy may have limited success without proper NO production.”
