The potential of stem cell therapy still lies ahead. The only outcome reliably achieved to date in human medicine is the reduction of chronic inflammation via transplantation of mesenchymal stem cells. The real goal for this field is, however, the replacement and enhanced performance of specific stem cell populations in order to produce regeneration that does not normally take place, or to restore youthful tissue maintenance in the old. That remains to be achieved in anything more than a preliminary way in even the most well studied stem cell populations, those of muscle, brain, and bone marrow. In murine models, there have been some therapeutic successes reported when aged systems have an influx of stem cells with restored or robust function. One such study showed […]

The extracellular matrix is constructed and maintained by cells, and provides structural and other support to the cell populations of a tissue. The extracellular matrix changes with age, and is of great importance to tissue function, but the details of extracellular matrix aging do not receive anywhere near the attention given to the biochemistry of cells. The arrangement of molecules of the extracellular matrix determines the structural properties of tissue, and changes such as cross-linking alter that in harmful ways, such as by reducing the elasticity of skin and blood vessel walls.

Throughout one's life, the blood is constantly being replenished from blood stem cells. However, these cells lose their functionality in old age. Researchers at the Leibniz Institute on Aging—Fritz Lipmann Institute (FLI) have now found a gene mechanism that is responsible for the aging of hematopoietic stem cells. The gene Igf2bp2 is important in youth for the full function of these cells, as it activates their growth and metabolism. When the gene is missing, however, the aging-associated loss of function of the stem cells is surprisingly diminished. The eventual aging of hematopoietic stem cells is apparently already preprogrammed by their gene-driven growth in youth.

18:03 Phys.org Double agents: How stomach stem cells change allegiance upon injury

A stomach adult stem cell population can fulfill two distinct functions: either help with digestion under normal conditions or take the lead on injury response. Scientists at IMBA, Institute of Molecular Biotechnology of the Austrian Academy of Sciences, demonstrate that these functions are two sides of the same coin. Upon injury, one molecular switch is enough to propel the stem cells from one state to the other. The findings, now published in Cell Stem Cell, could be instrumental in improving our understanding of gastric pathologies.

20:20 ScienceDaily.com Cilia-free stem cells offer new path to study rare diseases

A group of rare diseases called ciliopathies -- polycystic kidney disease notable among them -- emerge from defects in cilia. These are the tiny hairlike structures on the surface of almost every cell type. Scientists experimentally 'knocked out,' or genetically deleted, the cilia in a population of otherwise normal human pluripotent stem cells. Subsequently, human tissues and mini-organ structures (organoids) derived from these cilia-free stem cells manifested ciliopathy-like symptoms, such those seen in polycystic kidney disease or in certain problems in brain development.

12:03 Phys.org Study identifies how blood stem cells maintain their fate

Understanding the molecular mechanisms that specify and maintain the identities of more than 200 cell types of the human body is arguably one of the most fundamental problems in molecular and cellular biology, with critical implications for the treatment of human diseases. Central to the cell fate decision process are stem cells residing within each tissue of the body.

Sleep deprivation, which means getting too little high-quality sleep, is a serious health problem. More than one-third of people in the USA report getting less than the recommended minimum of seven hours sleep per night.

19:33 Phys.org New study reveals how human embryo develops the precursor to blood-forming stem cells

Blood-forming stem cells found in bone marrow are the life-saving component used in bone marrow transplants. However, suitable donors cannot be found in many cases. A new study reveals how the human embryo develops the precursor to blood-forming stem cells, which researchers say can be used in the novel method they developed to generate blood-forming stem cells from cells in a tissue culture.
