Abstract

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small noncoding RNAs that bind to the 3′-UTR of mRNAs and function mainly in post-transcriptional regulation. MiRNAs have been implicated to play roles in organ development, including that of the pancreas. Many miRNAs, such as miR-375, miR-124, miR-7, miR-21 and m...read more

Adult Stem Cells

Adult stem cells reside in unique niches that provide vital cues for their survival, self-renewal, and differentiation. They hold great promise for use in tissue repair and regeneration as a novel therapeutic strategies. Here is the latest research.

T Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia Identification

Neural Stem Cell Regulation

Neural stem cells are self-renewing, multipotent cells that are present in both the embryonic and adult brain. Several factors, including metabolism, have been shown to regulate proliferation, differentiation, and quiescence of neural stem cells. Here is the latest research.

Epigenetics of Beta Cells in T2D

While type 2 diabetes (T2D) is heritable, less than 20% of this heritability is explained by known genetic variants. This discrepancy maybe explained by epigenetic changes and epigenetic inheritance in pancreatic cells. Here is the latest research on the epigenetic control of beta cell function and failure in T2D.

Proinsulin & Type 2 Diabetes

Proinsulin, a prohormone precursor to insulin, is produced in beta cells of pancreatic islets. Here is the latest research on proinsulin in type 2 diabetes.

Embryogenesis

Embryogenesis is the process by which the embryo forms and develops. It starts with the fertilization of the egg cell (ovum) by a sperm cell, (spermatozoon). Once fertilized, the ovum is referred to as a zygote, a single diploid cell. The zygote undergoes mitotic divisions with no significant growth (a process known as cleavage) and cellular differentiation, leading to development of a multicellular embryo

Pancreas Regeneration

The pancreas are a source of digestive enzymes and the vital metabolic hormone, insulin. This feed focuses on pancreas regeneration with emphasis on cellular reprogramming, harvesting islets from genetically engineered animal models, and using pluripotent stem cells to derive pancreatic cell types for therapeutic interventions.

RNA Modifications in Diabetes

This feed looks at the emerging role of epigenetic modifications, such as those that occur on RNA that may affect function in various diseases. Discover the latest research on RNA Modifications in Diabetes.

Type 2 Diabetes (Preprints)

This feed focuses on Type 2 Diabetes, a disease where the body doesn’t produce or respond to insulin anymore, leading to abnormal glucose levels in the blood.

Wnt Signaling (Preprints)

Wnt signal transduction pathway is regulated by several molecules and is critical for embryonic development, cell proliferation, differentiation, and tissue patterning. Here is the latest research on Wnt signaling.

Generating Insulin-Secreting Cells

Reprogramming cells or using induced pluripotent stem cells to generate insulin-secreting cells has significant therapeutic implications for diabetics. Here is the latest research on generation of insulin-secreting cells.
