The Stem Cell Science Round Up
A 4D Atlas of C. elegans Embryogenesis – Researchers generated a single-cell spatiotemporal atlas of transcription factors in C. elegans embryogenesis.
Lysosomal Regulation of Stem Cell Fate – Scientists found that lysosomal activity regulates hematopoietic stem cell fate.
Ductal and Mesenchymal Cells in Liver Regeneration – Researchers generated liver organoids and found that the ratio and number of contacts between ductal and mesenchymal cells regulate regeneration.
Extending Life Span with VEGF – Researchers found reduced VEGF signaling in key organs in aged mice, and showed that VEGF-treated mice lived longer and had an extended health span.
