The Stem Cell Science Round Up
Improved Stem Cell-Derived Beta Cells – The quality of stem cell-derived beta cells can be improved by enriching the culture for specific subpopulations that differentiate homogeneously into pancreatic progenitors.
CRISPR Screening for Tumor Drivers – A new organoid-based platform has been developed to identify drivers of cancer using CRISPR-Cas9.
Working Together to Heal the Heart – Researchers have identified two transcription factors that work together to regulate cardiomyocyte maturation and proliferation, and whose deletion can initiate heart regeneration.
How the Prostate Gland Regenerates – Investigators have found that prostate regeneration is not only driven by rare stem cells, as previously thought, but also by a large population of differentiated cells.
