Abstract

The whole structure of higher plants is generated dynamically throughout the life cycle by the activity of stem cell niches at the apex of shoot and root. Hormone molecules and many transcription factors cooperate to balance the stem cell maintenance and differentiation. It is becoming ...read more

Genetic Engineering to Program Cells

Genetic engineering is a process that alters the genetic structure of an organism by removing or introducing DNA. This technique is being tested to program cells. Discover the latest research on genetic engineering to program cells here.

RNAi & Gene Silencing

RNA Interference (RNAi) pathway is involved in post-transcriptional gene silencing, transcriptional silencing and epigenetic silencing as well as its use as a tool for forward genetics and therapeutics. Discover the latest research here.

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.

Stem And Cancer Cells

The cancer stem cell theory proposes that, in tumors, there exist a sub-population of cells that possess characteristics of normal stem cells, specifically the ability to self-renew, and that these cells proliferate and sustain the cancer. Here is the latest research on stem and cancer cells.

PSCs in Development and Disease

Pluripotent stem cells (PSCs) are progenitor cells that can give rise to three basic layers of the body, thus potentially allowing the production of any cells or tissues needed by the body for repair. Here is the latest research on the PSCs in development and disease.

Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells

Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) may be obtained by direct reprogramming of different somatic cells to a pluripotent state by forced expression of a handful of transcription factors, These cells have similar properties to those of embryonic stem cells (escs) but bypass the ethical concerns of embryo destruction and can be exploited for both research and clinical applications.Discover the latest research on iPSC here.

Stem Cell Niches

Stem cell niches are dynamic microenvironments that balance stem cell activity to maintain tissue homeostasis and repair throughout the lifetime of an organism. Here is the latest research.
