1. Did you know that there is a gene that helps you to supress the need to have an afternoon siesta? Yes, Scientists have discovered a gene which they have named as "daywake" in fruit flies that helps to suppress the flies' tendency to take a daytime nap but instead spend additional time usefully seeking food or mates.

2. New study has identified four personality types in humans: average, reserved, self-centered & role model and the findings of the study challenge existing paradigms in psychology. The knowledge on the four personality types could be helpful in hiring managers and mental health care providers.

CURRENT STEM CELL NEWS   Events

1. Skin cells converted to distinct embryonic cell types using a specific transcription factors cocktail

A combination of five transcription factors, Gata3, Eomes, Tfap2c, Myc, and Esrrb has been able to reprogram fibroblasts into induced pluripotent stem cells, induced trophoblast stem cells, and induced extraembryonic endoderm stem cells at the same time.

2. Newly discovered messenger cell heals large bones

A Sox9-expressing periosteal subpopulation has been discovered and these cells dubbed as messenger cells have been able to play a major role in orchestrating large-scale bone regeneration. Click to read more... | Click here to view the link of the relevant publication in a peer reviewed journal

3. Scientist find how plant cells heal their wounds

Researchers have studied plant wound healing and identified that the cells adjacent to the injury immediately activate their stem cell divisions and the cell fate of divided cells is re-specified to correctly replace missing cells.

4. Decellularized bone scaffolds help Blood production in lab

A hematopoietic microenvironment was provided using decellularized cancellous bones (DCBs) as scaffold and this scaffold was very favourable for the persistent homing of hematopoietic stem cells. This methodology could help in in vitro blood production in the future. Click to read more... | Click here to view the link of the relevant publication in a peer reviewed journal

5. Splenectomy before stem cell treatment A potential hope to bone marrow disorder

A study has reported that Splenectomy before Allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (alloHSCT) will be useful in patients who failed to achieve significant spleen response after ruxolitinib therapy.

6. First off the shelf iPS derived Natural killer cells to treat cancer

FT500 is an off-the-shelf, iPSC-derived NK cell product and it is being tried in Combination With Immune Checkpoint Inhibitors to treat Advanced Solid cancers. Click to read more... | Click here to view the link of the relevant publication in a peer reviewed journal

7. Single cell analysis help researchers find effective way to produce iPS cells

Using single-cell transcriptomes, researchers have defined the transcriptional signature and key regulators of reprogramming cells and this knowledge could help in making induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cell production process more efficient.

8. iPS cells produce more extracellular Vesicles to deliver proteins to aged cells- says study

Adult cells when reprogrammed to induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) are able to make more of extracellular vesicles which act as tiny 'cargo packets' to deliver potentially restorative or repairing proteins, antibodies or other therapies to aged cells.

9. CRISPR gene editing process help scientists decipher treatment targets in hereditary liver disease

The genome editing technology CRISPR/Cas9 has been used to engineer a human stem cell model of Congenital hepatic fibrosis (CHF) and this model has helped identify molecular targets that may aid in the treatment.

10. Neuron resilience in ALS studied using stem cells

Motor neuron resilience which occurs in Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) has been modelled in vitro by over expression of a specific gene in neurons derived from mouse embryonic stem cells and this could help in identifying new treatments for the disease.
