    The article comments on the ethical deadlock in stem cell research. Approaches in the understanding of the control of early human embryonic development could extend solutions to the moral dilemmas affiliated with human embryonic stem cell research, the author stressed. He added that the issue...

    The article focuses on the methods development of embryonic stem cells (ES) which are more ethically acceptable methods for producing human ES cells. Such methods were developed through: (1) pluripotent stem cells via blastomere extraction from living embryos; and (2) pluripotent stem cells...

    We studied the influence of doubling the mass of explanted fragments of the dorsal and ventral loach blastoderm at the early gastrula stage on their capacity for differentiation of axial structures. The dorsoventral differences are as follows: the differentiation of somites correlates, according...

    Embryogenesis in the beetle Tribolium is of increasing interest to both molecular and evolutionary biology because it differs from the Drosophila paradigm by its type of segment specification (short- vs. long-germ) and by the extensive epithelial envelopes – amnion and serosa –...

    At the heart of the extensive ethical and regulatory debates that have surrounded human embryonic stem cells is the human pre-implantation embryo. Advances in the understanding of cellular reprogramming, both by cell nuclear replacement and by potential new protocols, should lead to methods that...

    Human embryonic stem cell (hESC) lines are known to be morphologically and phenotypically heterogeneous. The functional nature and relationship of cells residing within hESC cultures, however, has not been evaluated because isolation of single hESCs is limited to drug or manual selection. Here...
