  • New clues to Myelination could help Identify ways to Intervene in Neurodegenerative Diseases

    “If we can further enhance our understanding of how these oligodendrocyte precursor cells mature, then it may be possible to stimulate them to replace myelin in diseases like multiple sclerosis.”, says Pablo Paez, PhD, Assistant professor and research scientist , unters James Kelly Research Institute at University at Buffalo, US.  The Researchers at the University at Buffalo have identified a critical step in myelination after birth that has significance for treating...

  • Cell Signalling in the Cardiovascular System

    The cardiovascular system is a highly complex, well organised system in which signal transduction plays critical physiological and pathophysiological roles. The cellular elements of the heart and vascular wall are equipped with an array of specific receptors and with complex intracellular machinery that facilitates and drives appropriate responses to extracellular stimuli. Understanding the mechanisms through which extracellular stimuli modify the functions of cells in the heart and vascular wall...

  • Gut Tissue with Functional Nervous System Created in Laboratory for First Time

    Scientists created human gut tissue containing a functional nervous system in the laboratory for the first time. According to the authors of the study, “Engineered human pluripotent-stem-cell-derived intestinal tissues with a functional enteric nervous system,” which was published in the leading scientific journal Nature Medicine, this research could help treat people with conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). However, they warned: “The complexity of the [gut] tissue will...

  • Defined and Serum-free Media on the Rise

    The global cell culture market has been broadly segmented into media, sera, and reagents. Chemically-defined media rarely provide desired yield, and thus the inclination toward more complex media increases. The adoption of chemically-defined media has been slow yet steady for both media manufacturers and bioprocessors. Demand for media has been shifting from serum-based to serum-sparing, serum-free animal derived, and chemically-defined media. Lysogeny broth (LB) is a nutritive medium used for artificial...

  • Long-Term Outcome of Patients with Perimembranous Ventricular Septal Defect

    Isolated ventricular septal defect (VSD) is the most common congenital heart defect, apart from bicuspid aortic valve, accounting for 30-40% of all congenital cardiac malformations. Spontaneous closure in the first years of life is common in cases of small defects. VSD is generally diagnosed and, if necessary, treated in childhood. Four subgroups have been defined in the guidelines, according to defect location: perimembranous, muscular, outlet and inlet type. The perimembranous type is the most...
