Using Adult Stem Cells
An atlas of the human genome using state-of-the-art gene-editing technology and human embryonic stem cells, which explains the roles that genes play in health and disease, has been created by Hebrew University scientists. Prof. Nissim Benvenisty, director of the university’s Azrieli Center for
Embryonic stem cells are a unique resource as they can turn into any adult cell in our bodies. Their versatile nature puts them at the center of attention in the fields of regenerative medicine, disease modeling and drug discovery.
Induction of Pluripotent Stem Cells from Mouse Embryonic and Adult Fibroblast Cultures by Defined Factors
There are several ways adult stem cells can be isolated such as harvesting from the body itself, amniotic fluid, from embryonic stem cells, and from other adult
Generation of Induced Progenitor-like Cells from Mature Epithelial Cells Using Interrupted Reprogramming
Induced pluripotent stem cells (also known as iPS cells or iPSCs) are a type of pluripotent stem cell that can be generated directly from adult cells. The iPSC technology was pioneered by Shinya Yamanaka’s lab in Kyoto, Japan, who showed in 2006 that the introduction of four specific genes encoding transcription factors could convert adult cells into pluripotent stem cells.
Stem cells are biological cells that can differentiate into other types of cells and can divide to produce more of the same type of stem cells. They are found in multicellular organisms.. In mammals, there are two broad types of stem cells: embryonic stem cells, which are isolated from the inner cell mass of blastocysts, and adult stem cells, …
I am here today with Dr. Christopher Centeno, MD, who is an international expert and specialist in regenerative medicine. He’s at the forefront of research on using adult stem cells in orthopedics to repair common injuries and provide an alternative to painful and invasive surgery.. I’m just starting to learn about the huge potential of stem cell …
The new procedure aims to recontour the face using the patient’s own fat, mixed with their own stem cells.
