The authors offer information on the conflicts of federal funding associated with the first human embryonic stem cell (hESC) line research. They mention several factors of federal funding conflicts including legal, legislative and political. They discuss resolution of the legal challenge to the federal funding of hESC research and also focus on the future course regarding this issue of funding.

    MiR-302b is a member of mi-302-367 cluster. The mi-302-367 cluster played important roles in maintaining pluripotency in human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) and has been proved to be capable of suppressing cell growth in several types of cancer cell lines including Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC)...

    MicroRNAs (miRNA) comprise a group of short ribonucleic acid molecules implicated in regulation of key biological processes and functions at the post-transcriptional level. Ionizing radiation (IR) causes DNA damage and generally triggers cellular stress response. However, the role of miRNAs in...

    Purpose: Human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) are self-renewing, pluripotent cells that are valuable research tools and hold promise for use in regenerative medicine. The need for new hESC lines motivated our attempts to find a new resource for the derivation of hESC lines. The aim of this work...

    Purpose: To explore a simple method of establishing pluripotent human embryonic stem cell (hESC) lines from single blastomeres of low-quality (LQ) embryos. Methods: Blastomeres were isolated from normally fertilized, day-3 pre-implantation LQ embryos by dissolving of the zona pellucida and were...

    For the most part metazoan genomes are highly methylated and harbor only small regions with low or absent methylation. In contrast, partially methylated domains (PMDs), recently discovered in a variety of cell lines and tissues, do not fit this paradigm as they show partial methylation for large...

    Tumor-tropic neural stem cells (NSCs) can be used in the Trojan horse approach as cellular vehicles for targeted delivery of therapeutic agents to distant tumor sites. To realize this cancer therapy potential, it is important to have a renewable source to generate large quantities of uniform...

  • Applying Pluripotent Stem Cells in Drug Discovery. Steger, Matthias // Drug Discovery;2010, Vol. 7, p18 

    There is huge excitement around the potential of pluripotent stem cells in drug discovery. Human embryonic stem cells are proving to be a rich source of previously scarce cell types, such as cardiomyocytes, neurons and hepatocytes, for use in pre-clinical pharmaceutical research. For example, it...

    Objective: There is constant difficulty in obtaining adequate supplies of blood components, as well as disappointing performance of "universal" red blood cells. Advances in somatic cell reprogramming of human-induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) have provided a valuable alternative source to...
