Immunological Challenges for Stem Cells


Stem cells transmit a vast potential for treating disease but they also come with hurdles that must be overcome to ensure their success and viability for treating disease. One challenging area is that involving a patient's immune system. The challenges are also unusual because they mostly pertain to embryonic stem cells whereas adult stem cells can actually alleviate immunological challenges that tend to accompany embryonic stem cells. It's important to understand what exactly happens during immune rejection before looking at the different immunological consequences from use of embryonic stem cells.

Just how Alcohol Affects Stem Cells


Alcohol is known to cause several health difficulties but new research shows it can affect stem cells too. In particular, a recent study suggests alcohol damages stem cells in the developing brains of teenagers.

Anxieties about Stem Cells

Stem cells

Despite the enormous therapeutic potential for stem cells to treat a vast array of serious diseases there are still concerns about potentially dangerous results. Scientists are excited about the possibilities of saving lives and reducing morbidity from disease but at the same time, there are fears regarding unexpected results and effects from stem cell usage. With recent technologies having triggered a major increase in stem cell treatments, the concept of stem cell therapies is no longer such a foreign one.

Study shows clathrin protein moonlights, playing key role in cell division


A protein called "clathrin," which is found in every human cell and plays a critical role in transporting materials within them, also plays a key role in cell division, according to new research at the University of California, San Francisco.

The Organized cell



(Phys.org)—An interdisciplinary effort at the Friedrich Miescher Institute for Biomedical Research (FMI) addressed the question of how mRNA content, which is translated into proteins, is regulated in the cell. Supported by the Swiss initiative for systems biology (SystemsX.ch), experimental biologists and computer scientists teamed up to contrast epigenomic data of histone modifications with post-transcriptional read-outs. Their study, published as a featured article in the journal Molecular Systems Biology, gives answer to a quantitative question in gene regulation.

Spread makes likely near-instantaneous DNA analysis



Picture this: You've brought your sick child to the doctor's office. After checking her pulse and blood pressure, he takes a nasal or throat swab and inserts it into a mysterious black box. Before the doctor finishes his examination, the black box beeps, indicating that the pathogen that's making your child sick has been identified.

Sound far-fetched? Actually, this scenario is closer to becoming a reality. Thanks to work by Reginald Beer and his team of scientists and engineers at DOE's Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, sub-three-minute amplification of nucleic acids (DNA and RNA) via polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is now possible.

With three school-age children of his own, Beer knows all too well the frustration of waiting 24 to 48 hours for lab results to learn whether his sick youngster can be treated with antibiotics. "I was sitting in the pediatrician's office with my daughter several years ago, and it struck me that if we could make PCR fast and easy enough for use in doctors' offices, it would have a huge impact."

PCR is an indispensible technique in medical and biological research laboratories around the world. It allows researchers and clinicians to produce millions of copies from a single piece of DNA or RNA for use in genome sequencing, gene analysis, inheritable disease diagnosis, paternity testing, forensic identification, and the detection of infectious diseases.

Fresh technique helps researchers decode genomes



Although scientists sequenced the entire human genome more than 10 years ago, much work remains to understand what proteins all those genes code for.

Now, a study published online Aug. 27 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences describes a new approach that allows researchers to decode the genome by understanding where genes begin to encode for polypeptides, long chains of amino acids that make up proteins.

 "The key to decoding the genome knows exactly where the genes start to encode polypeptides," said Shu-Bing Qian, the paper's senior author and an assistant professor of nutritional sciences at Cornell. "If we know where they start, then we can predict what proteins they produce based on the gene's sequence.

Nanoparticles supplementary to platelets dual core injury existence rate


September 3, 2012 by Kevin Mayhood (Phys.org)—Nanoparticles tailored to interact with platelets rapidly create healthy clots and nearly double the survival rate in the vital first hour after injury, new research shows.

"We knew an injection of these nanoparticles stopped bleeding faster, but now we know the bleeding is stopped in time to increase survival following trauma," said Erin Lavik, a professor of biomedical engineering at Case Western Reserve University and leader of the effort.

Anchoring Proteins Effect Glucose Metabolism and Insulin Proclamation



(Sep. 4, 2012) — Scientists from the United States and Sweden have discovered a new control point that could be important as a drug target for the treatment of diabetes and other metabolic diseases. A-kinase anchoring proteins or AKAPs are known to influence the spatial distribution of kinases within the cell, crucial enzymes that control important molecular events related to the regulation of glucose levels in the blood.

In a new study published in The EMBO Journal, the team of researchers led by Simon Hinke and John Scott reveal for the first time that AKAPs influence the levels of glucose in the body by coordinating the spatial positioning of phosphatases, naturally occurring enzymes that counteract the effects of kinase enzymes.

New DNA-method


Tracks fish and whales in seawater

Sept. 4, 2012 — Danish researchers at the University of Copenhagen are using a new method for monitoring marine biodiversity and resources by using DNA traces in seawater to keep track of fish and whales. A half liter of seawater can contain evidence of local fish and whale faunas and eliminate the need for marine conservationists to employ traditional fishing methods in their work. The results of the new study have been published in PLOS ONE.

"The new DNA-method means that we can keep better track of life beneath the surface of the oceans around the world, and better monitor and protect ocean biodiversity and resources," says Ph.D. student Philip Francis Thomsen from the Centre for GeoGenetics, Natural History Museum of Denmark, University of Copenhagen.

Pluripotent Stem Cells

Moving toward regeneration

Sept. 1, 2012—the skin, the blood, and the lining of the gut—adult stem cells replenish them daily. But stem cells really show off their healing powers in planarians, humble flatworms fabled for their ability to rebuild any missing body part. Just how adult stem cells build the right tissues at the right times and places has remained largely unanswered.


Now, in a study published in an upcoming issue of Development, researchers at the Stowers Institute for Medical Research describe a novel system that allowed them to track stem cells in the flatworm Schmidtea mediterranea. The team found that the worms' stem cells, known as neoblasts, march out, multiply, and start rebuilding tissues lost to amputation.
