The naive state of human pluripotent stem cells: a synthesis of stem cell and preimplantation embryo transcriptome analyses

Cell Stem Cell
Kevin HuangGuoping Fan


Here we use a systems biology approach to comprehensively assess the conservation of gene networks in naive pluripotent stem cells (PSCs) with preimplantation embryos. While gene networks in murine naive and primed pluripotent states are reproducible across data sets, different sources of human stem cells display high degrees of variation, partly reflecting disparities in culture conditions. Finally, naive gene networks between human and mouse PSCs are not well conserved and better resemble their respective blastocysts.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Sexual Dimorphism in Neurodegeneration

There exist sex differences in neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders. For instance, multiple sclerosis is more common in women, whereas Parkinson’s disease is more common in men. Here is the latest research on sexual dimorphism in neurodegeneration
