Discusses the government's delay in deciding whether to permit research into the therapeutic use of human embryonic stem cells in Great Britain. Creation of anti-science climate; Reaction of the researchers towards the delay.
- Transplanted embryonic stem cells survive, differentiate and promote recovery in injured rat spinal cord. McDonald, John W.; Liu, Xiao-Zhong; Qu, Yun; Liu, Su; Mickey, Shannon K.; Turetsky, Dorothy; Gottlieb, David I.; Choi, Dennis W. // Nature Medicine;Dec99, Vol. 5 Issue 12, p1410
Transplantation approaches using cellular bridges, fetal central nervous system cells, fibroblasts expressing neurotrophin-3 (ref. 6), hybridoma cells expressing inhibitory protein-blocking antibodies, or olfactory nerves ensheathing glial cells transplanted into the acutely injured spinal cord...
- Apc modulates embryonic stem-cell differentiation by controlling the dosage of �-catenin signaling. Kielman, Menno F.; Rindap��, Maaret; Gaspar, Claudia; van Poppel, Nicole; Breukel, Cor; van Leeuwen, Sandra; Taketo, Makoto Mark; Roberts, Scott; Smits, Ron; Fodde, Riccardo // Nature Genetics;Dec2002, Vol. 32 Issue 4, p594
The Wnt signal-transduction pathway induces the nuclear translocation of membrane-bound �-catenin (Catnb) and has a key role in cell-fate determination. Tight somatic regulation of this signal is essential, as uncontrolled nuclear accumulation of �-catenin can cause developmental defects and...
- Japan okays stem cells. Saegusa, Asako // Nature Biotechnology;Mar2000, Vol. 18 Issue 3, p246
Reports on the approval given by the bioethics committee of Japan's Science and Technology Council for research involving the use of embryonic stem cells. Reason cited by the committee for granting approval to the research; Plans of the committee to draw up guidelines for embryonic stem cell...
- High-yield selection and extraction of two promoter-defined phenotypes of neural stem cells from the fetal human brain. Keyoung, H. Michael; Roy, Neeta S.; Benraiss, Abdellatif; Louissaint, Abner; Suzuki, Akira; Hashimoto, Mitsuhiro; Rashbaum, William K.; Okano, Hideyuki; Goldman, Steven A. // Nature Biotechnology;Sep2001, Vol. 19 Issue 9, p843
Neural stem and precursor cells reside in the ventricular lining of the fetal forebrain, and may provide a cellular substrate for brain repair. To selectively identify and extract these cells, we infected dissociated fetal human brain cells with adenoviruses bearing the gene for green...
