watch (Nature, Jul 2015) Scientists show that stem cells use special structures called nanotubes to receive supportive signals from their environment.
(Mol Syst Biol Oct 2013) Factors that are crucial for the regulation of embryonic stem cells control each other through protein-protein binding, adding a new layer of biological control in the maintenance of pluripotency in stem cells.
(Dev Cell, Jan 2014) Scientists discover how cells coordinate their nuclear response to stress with early steps in the execution of programmed cell death.
(Cell, Oct 2013) New theoretical models suggest that targeting the dynamic features of a signaling network, rather than its individual components, will lead to drugs with reduced side effects.
(Nat Cell Biol, Nov 2012) Study explores how normal fluctuations in the expression of a key cell pluripotency factor affect stem cells.
(Stem Cells, Dec 2012) Researchers suggest that resistance to drug treatments may be a normal part of a cancer stem cell’s life.
(Cell, Aug 2012) New research unveils how cells maintain identity through mitosis, when most genes turn off and transcription factors abandon their target sites in DNA.
(Stem Cells, Sep 2012) Researchers began dissecting the molecular pathways that help stem cells remain undifferentiated when properly bound to each other.
