LONDON - Scientists at the University of California, San Francisco claim to have identified a gene crucial to maintaining embryonic stem cells’ all-purpose, pluripotent state.
No doubt it is a controversial issue where the egg cell donor will be paid, it has two very contradicting point of view. Lets read what either has to say.
British scientists claim to create human sperm
LONDON — British scientists claimed Wednesday to have created human sperm from embryonic stem cells for the first time, an accomplishment they say may someday help infertile men father children.
LONDON - Scientists have achieved a major breakthrough in making sperm-like cells from human embryonic stem cells.
The rules, the agency said, lay out which research is eligible for federal funding and help “ensure that NIH-funded research in this area is ethically responsible, scientifically worthy and conducted in accordance with applicable law.”
Recently a group of Dutch researchers have revealed that inactivation of one of the X chromosome happens to occur before the female embryo gets implanted to the mother’s womb. This revealation has long way to go in ES cell research.
WASHINGTON - Researchers at the University of California-Los Angeles (UCLA) have shown that there are certain molecular differences between embryonic stem cells and skin cells skin cells reprogrammed into embryonic-like cells.
Although genetically identical how can the ES cells differ in phenotype from the iPS cells? In a recent finding by the UCLA researchers, it has been proved that the molecular signatures are distinct. But still tests are pending to reveal the mystery.
Studying with human embryonic stem cells Harvard University scientists able to discovered a master heart stem cell, which con provide new fast and authentic ways for drug development.
Quite evidently a huge tug of war is going on between drug manufacturers and bio-tech companies to establish a viable stem cell product in the market. When every one is moving in a neck-break speed to capture and lead the market as a first stem cell product manufacturer, a famous electric company, General Electric (GE) quite surprisingly decided to work with stem cell research.
