Scientists did a loss-of and gain-of-function experiments to understand how skin cells are reprogrammed into stem cells.
Scientists may have the solution to the growing cases of aggressive melanoma, the deadliest type of skin cancer.
The survival rate of patients after the treatment of glioblastoma, a type of brain cancer, is only 30%. The patients who undergo the treatment do not survive more than two years as even if the surgeon removes the tumor, it is absolutely impossible to get rid of the tendrils that spread into the brain and make the tumor reappear.
Studies show that body mites are loyal and have evolved with us through the aeons.
Researchers from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have successfully converted skin cells into brain cells without going through a stem cell phase.
Biologists have devised a way to reprogram a patient's skin cells into cells that mimic and exhibit biological features of a rare genetic disorder called familial dysautonomia, according to a new study.
In a new study, researchers were able to create early-stage sperm cells from skin cells.
Researchers reported that converting adult human cells could help create hair-follicle-generating stem cells.
Your body clock does more than help you sleep. New research suggests that our circadian rhythms also help protect us from cancer.
Researchers study Down syndrome affected cells produced by skin cells from people with the condition and found certain gene changes that could be linked to symptoms associated with the disorder.
Such technology could be used to help people with arthritis, broken bones or bones that have been damaged with disease.
Scientists have discovered a way to convert ordinary skin cells into myelinating cells, or brain cells that have been destroyed in patients with multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy and other myelin disorders.
