  • Why the Heart does not Repair itself?

    New Study: Heart muscle is one of the least renewable tissues in the body. According to a new study, a group of researchers has fund that #heart muscle is one of the least renewable tissues in the body, which is one of the reasons that heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women. The team has studied pathways known to be involved in heart cell functions and discovered a previously unknown connection between processes that keep the heart from repairing itself. The study was...

  • Conversion of adult #, endothelium to immunocompetent #hematopoietic stem cells

    This paper is great promise: Developmental pathways that orchestrate the fleeting transition of endothelial cells into haematopoietic stem cells remain undefined. Here we demonstrate a tractable approach for fully reprogramming adult mouse endothelial cells to haematopoietic stem cells (rEC-HSCs) through transient expression of the transcription-factor-encoding genes Fosb, Gfi1, Runx1, and Spi1 (collectively denoted hereafter as FGRS) and vascular-niche-derived angiocrine factors.

  • ReSyn Biosciences is a Consortium Member of the BioCapture Network

    Our Partner #ReSyn Biosciences became a member of the BioCapture network. This is a European Training Network (ETN) funded by the European Commission under the #Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action. The network consists of 15 research groups, spread across 11 universities and institutes and 4 industrial partners in 6 different countries that have come together to train a new generation of chemists/phycisists/biologists through an EU-wide #PhD training network. The main aim of this interdisciplinary...

  • Reprogramming Adult Cells in vivo to Treat Parkinson’s

    Reprogramming of #iPSCs has given rise to the emergence of #reprogramming approaches that target other types of cells including those of meso-, endo- and ectodermal origin — for example, the generation of functional neurons from fibroblasts which has been reported in a number of recent studies. These are, potentially, therapeutically powerful strategies to target severe and elusive diseases. One such disease is #Parkinson’s, a disorder of the nervous system affected by the death of neurons...

  • This is the stuff from which the cartilage was grown: induced pluripotent stem cells, often called #iPS cells. Guiding a recent tour of a Kyoto University lab, a staff member holds up a transparent container. Inside are tiny pale spheres, no bigger than peas, floating in a clear liquid. “This is cartilage,” explains the guide, […]

    Waiting to Reprogram Your Cells? Don’t Hold Your Breath

    This is the stuff from which the cartilage was grown: induced pluripotent stem cells, often called #iPS cells. Guiding a recent tour of a Kyoto University lab, a staff member holds up a transparent container. Inside are tiny pale spheres, no bigger than peas, floating in a clear liquid. “This is cartilage,” explains the guide, Hiroyuki Wadahama. “It was made here from human iPS cells.” A monitor attached to a nearby microscope shows a mass of pink and purple dots. This is the stuff from...

  • 3D Tissue Culture Model Mimics Gut Infections

    With threats like zika, ebola, #SARS and tuberculosis increasing, researchers are using predictive tissue culture models to more accurately reflect how humans respond to pathogens. The lack of sophisticated models has greatly slowed the ability to understand infectious disease from both the host and the pathogen perspective. One approach to address this problem is the use of predictive tissue culture models. To develop these models, an understanding of how cells and tissues in our bodies function...

  • SC treatment may Restore Vision

    Researchers working as part of the University of Georgia’s Regenerative Bioscience Center have developed a new way to identify and sort #stem cells that may one day allow clinicians to restore vision to people with damaged corneas using the patient’s own eye tissue. They published their findings in Biophysical Journal. The #cornea is a transparent layer of tissue covering the front of the eye, and its health is maintained by a group of cells called limbal stem cells. But when these cells are...

  • Quit smoking? Cigarette smoke blocks self-healing processes

    Smoke from cigarettes blocks self-healing processes in the lungs and consequently can lead to chronic obstructive #pulmonary disease (COPD), says a new study. Researchers at the #Helmholtz Zentrum München, partner in the German Centre for Lung Research (DZL), and their international colleagues have reported this finding in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine. Cough, bronchitis and breathing difficulties are the typical manifestations of COPD. Exact figures are not available,...
