Adult stem cells replenish dying cells and regenerate damaged tissues throughout our lifetime. We lose many of those stem cells, along with their regenerative capacity, as we age.
Most healthy people barely notice infection with the human cytomegalovirus (hCMV), a form of the herpes virus that has evolved with humans over thousands of years and usually lays dormant in the body after initial infection.
As part of the normal aging process, older adults frequently experience a decline in their olfactory function, resulting in a compromised or complete loss of sense of smell.
Head and neck tumors that contain cells undergoing a partial epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition – which transforms them from neatly organized blocks into irregular structures that extrude into the surrounding environment – are more likely to invade and spread to other parts of the body, accordi
Scientists from the University of Southern California Stem Cell lab of Francesca Mariani, Ph.D., have discovered how the vertebrate ribcage – which supports the body, protects the internal organs and enables life on lan d – develops.
A stem cell-derived in vitro model displays key small intestine characteristics including innate immune responses, according to a study by Ying Chen, Ph.D., and David Kaplan, Ph.D., from Tufts University (Boston, Massachusetts) and colleagues.
A team of researchers has illuminated an important role for different subtypes of muscle cells in orchestrating the process of tissue regeneration.
A new study led by researchers at Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute (SBP) identifies a signaling pathway that is essential for angiogenesis, the growth of new blood vessels from pre-existing vessels.
Researchers report the unexpected finding that selectively deleting a stem cell transcription factor in adult mice promotes recovery after traumatic brain injury (TBI).
