The Stem Cell Science Round Up
Transplanting Islets into the Omentum – Researchers transplanted islets to a bioengineered omental pouch in non-human primates.
Bat iPSCs and Viruses – Scientists created iPSCs from two species of bats and identified a high number of endogenous viral sequences.
Regeneration in Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy – Forskolin reduced senescence of skeletal muscle stem cells and improved muscle function in a rat model of Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
Deer Antler Regeneration – Scientists used single-cell transcriptomics to construct a cell atlas of antler regeneration.
