Estudio de Mayo Clinic descubre cómo las células madre reparan los daños por un ataque cardíaco
Mayo Clinic

Los investigadores de Mayo Clinic descubrieron cuáles son los mecanismos de recuperación que las células madre activan después de un ataque cardíaco. Las células madre restablecieron el músculo cardíaco al estado que tenía antes del ataque al corazón, lo cual, a su vez, facilitó un diagrama del posible funcionamiento de estas células.

A direct protein-to-protein binding couples cell survival to cell proliferation
University of Alabama at Birmingham

The regulators of apoptosis watch over cell replication and the decision to enter the cell cycle. Researchers now show a direct link between the protein MCL1 — a member of the BCL2 protein family known as the gatekeepers of apoptosis — and the cell-cycle checkpoint protein P18.

Researchers Find That Nicotinamide May Help Treat Fibrotic Eye Diseases and Mitigate Vision Loss
Mount Sinai Health System

Nicotinamide can inhibit aggressive cell transformations during wound healing and may be key to the development of therapies to treat fibrotic eye diseases

Newswise: Immunotherapy using ‘young cells’ offers promising option against cancer

Immunotherapy using ‘young cells’ offers promising option against cancer
Washington University in St. Louis

A new study from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis suggests that the age of certain immune cells used in immunotherapy plays a role in how effective it is. These cells — natural killer (NK) cells — appear to be more effective the earlier they are in development, opening the door to the possibility of an immunotherapy that would not utilize cells from the patient or a matched donor. Instead, they could be developed from existing supplies of what are called human pluripotent stem cells.

New UCI-led study reveals how skin cells prepare to heal wounds
University of California, Irvine

A team of University of California, Irvine researchers have published the first comprehensive overview of the major changes that occur in mammalian skin cells as they prepare to heal wounds. Results from the study provide a blueprint for future investigation into pathological conditions associated with poor wound healing, such as in diabetic patients.
