2. Target Signal that controls Leukemia Stem Cells identified

A joint team of France, Canada and the U.S. scientists headed by Professor Dr. Andreas Trumpp of the German Cancer Research Center have identified an important signal that plays a key role in malignant growth of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL) and blockage of this signal has been found to stop the cancer cell growth.

3. 99% Similarity between Embryonic stem cells and iPS cells: says study

The question of whether the induced pluripotent stem cells are similar to embryonic stem cells has been answered by a recently published study on the proteins of these two cell types which revealed that they are 99 percent similar. Click to read more...

4. Hematopoietic stem cells expansion made successful using small molecules

Stowers scientists have used small molecules to reversibly activate two pathways, ‘the Wnt/ß-catenin and PI3K/Akt pathways’ in culture which in turn caused expansion of blood stem cells. Click to read more...
