A new protein known as TERT has been discovered which was previously known to be effective in regenerating DNA telomere. But presently a research shows that this preotein is potent to make adult stem cells divide. What does that indicate?
GRAFT vs host disease has been a common chronic disease in older days when tissue grafting derived from other people had been a common practise until the advent of artificial implants. Present day stem cell therapy involves transplantations which has again given triggered the frequency of the disease again. A new therapy has come up to solve the problem, but will it be effective enough?
As per Science Daily its a stem cell surprise, and its being such a surprise that would divert the whole global stem cell thoughts and would overturn the previous stem cell researches.
