NUS researchers confine mature cells to turn them into stem cells

National University of Singapore

Research led by Professor G.V. Shivashankar of the Mechanobiology Institute, Singapore and Italy’s IFOM has revealed that mature cells can be reprogrammed into redeployable stem cells without direct genetic modification – by confining them to a defined geometric space for an extended period of time.

How Targeting Metabolism Can Defeat Cancer Stem Cells

Michigan Medicine - University of Michigan

Researchers have found that cancer stem cells exist in more than one state and can change form, sliding back and forth between a dormant state and a rapidly growing state. The cell's metabolism controls this change, suggesting a possible way in to attack the stem cells.

CAR-T Immunotherapies May Have a New Player

University of California San Diego Health

Emerging CAR-T immunotherapies leverage modified versions of patient’s T-cells to target and kill cancer cells. In a new study, published June 28 online in Cell Stem Cell, researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine and University of Minnesota report that similarly modified natural killer (NK) cells derived from human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) also displayed heightened activity against a mouse model of ovarian cancer.

Researchers Identify Brain Cells Responsible for Removing Damaged Neurons After Injury

The Rockefeller University Press

Researchers at the University of Virginia School of Medicine have discovered that microglia, specialized immune cells in the brain, play a key role in clearing dead material after brain injury. The study, which will be published June 25 in the Journal of Experimental Medicine, reveals that microglia gobble up the remnants of injured neurons, which could prevent the damage from spreading to neighboring neurons and causing more extensive neurodegeneration.

Scientists isolate protein data from the tiniest of caches – single human cells

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory

Scientists have captured the most information yet about proteins within a single human cell, giving scientists one of their clearest looks yet at the molecular happenings inside a human cell. The team detected on average more than 650 proteins in each cell – many times more than conventional techniques capture from single cells.
