The Stem Cell Science Round Up

Blood Self-Renewal – Researchers identified a crucial regulator that modulates endocytosis and environmental sensing in hematopoietic stem cells.

Cardiomyocytes After Heart Attack – iPSC-derived cardiomyocytes were successfully engrafted into two rhesus macaques with small, subclinical chronic myocardial infarctions.

CHIP and Gum Disease – DNMT3A-driven clonal hematopoiesis of indeterminate potential (CHIP) and inflammatory bone loss are reversed by rapamycin.

Turtle Liver Organoids – Scientists developed and characterized adult stem cell-derived turtle liver organoids.
