Working with fruit flies, researchers identify a mechanism which helps explain how neurons which make up the visual system are generated.
Researchers have identified a set of compounds which could be used to treat MS. These compounds boost a population of progenitor cells which can repair damage to nerve fibers caused by the disease.
Although observed in other species, researchers report hippocampal neurogenesis does not persist through adult life in humans. Researchers say human hippocampal neurogenesis is not detectable in the adult brain.
According to researchers, a single infusion of HSPCs may halt cellular damage caused by Friedreich's ataxia.
Researchers from the University of Copenhagen have made a significant discovery as to how schizophrenia may occur. They discovered a genetic defect that causes damage to glial cells may also impair the production of myelin. Researchers believe the lack of myelin may be a significant contributor to the development of schizophrenia in some patients.
Certain progenitor cells in the bronchi are mainly responsible for producing coronavirus receptors. These cells normally develop into respiratory tract sells linked with cilia, that clear bacteria out of the lungs.
Researchers discover SMEK1 promotes the differentiation of neural stem and progenitor cells while, at the same time, keeping these cells in check by suppressing their uncontrolled proliferation.
Researchers hope new findings could lead to better control of the production of insulin producing endocrine cells.
According to a recently published stem cell study, new cells are quick to respond to sensory stimuli and adopt a function.
