Here are some stem cell reads for the weekend, ranging from media to research articles. TGIF!
What are your stem cell or other science weekend reads?
Let’s start with how difficult it is to make IPS cells from naked mole rats! Naked Mole Rat Cells Have a Stable Epigenome that Resists iPSC Reprogramming. It takes more than OSKM to make naked mole rat IPSCs. Throwing in SV40 LT helps, etc.
Regeneration is cool & we are getting to understand it better, Study first to identify the cells driving gecko’s ability to re-grow its tail. A structure called a blastema has a role more broadly in this kind of regeneration.
