  • Early Cell Fate Decisions of Human Embryonic Stem Cells and Mouse Epiblast Stem Cells Are Controlled by the Same Signalling Pathways. Vallier, Ludovic; Touboul, Thomas; Zhenzhi Chng; Brimpari, Minodora; Hannan, Nicholas; Millan, Enrique; Smithers, Lucy E.; Trotter, Matthew; Rugg-Gunn, Peter; Weber, Anne; Pedersen, Roger A. // PLoS ONE;2009, Vol. 4 Issue 6, p1 

    Human embryonic stem cells have unique value for regenerative medicine, as they are capable of differentiating into a broad variety of cell types. Therefore, defining the signalling pathways that control early cell fate decisions of pluripotent stem cells represents a major task. Moreover,...

    The article discusses a study which reveals the existence of multipotent Lgr5 CBC cells in the highest supra-Paneth crypt base columnar (CBC) position. It states that multipotent CBC cells which express Lgr5 orphan receptor are present all over gastro-intestinal tract. It mentions that the...

  • The mechanisms of Hedgehog signalling and its roles in development and disease. Briscoe, James; Thérond, Pascal P. // Nature Reviews Molecular Cell Biology;Jul2013, Vol. 14 Issue 7, p418 

    The cloning of the founding member of the Hedgehog (HH) family of secreted proteins two decades ago inaugurated a field that has diversified to encompass embryonic development, stem cell biology and tissue homeostasis. Interest in HH signalling increased when the pathway was implicated in...

  • Single Lgr5 stem cells build crypt?villus structures in vitro without a mesenchymal niche. Sato, Toshiro; Vries, Robert G.; Snippert, Hugo J.; van de Wetering, Marc; Barker, Nick; Stange, Daniel E.; van Es, Johan H.; Abo, Arie; Kujala, Pekka; Peters, Peter J.; Clevers, Hans // Nature;5/14/2009, Vol. 459 Issue 7244, p262 

    The intestinal epithelium is the most rapidly self-renewing tissue in adult mammals. We have recently demonstrated the presence of about six cycling Lgr5+ stem cells at the bottoms of small-intestinal crypts. Here we describe the establishment of long-term culture conditions under which single...

  • Characterization of Constitutive Promoters for piggyBac Transposon-Mediated Stable Transgene Expression in Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs). Wen, Sheng; Zhang, Hongmei; Li, Yasha; Wang, Ning; Zhang, Wenwen; Yang, Ke; Wu, Ningning; Chen, Xian; Deng, Fang; Liao, Zhan; Zhang, Junhui; Zhang, Qian; Yan, Zhengjian; Liu, Wei; Zhang, Zhonglin; Ye, Jixing; Deng, Youlin; Zhou, Guolin; Luu, Hue H.; Haydon, Rex C. // PLoS ONE;Apr2014, Vol. 9 Issue 4, p1 

    Multipotent mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) can undergo self-renewal and give rise to multi-lineages under given differentiation cues. It is frequently desirable to achieve a stable and high level of transgene expression in MSCs in order to elucidate possible molecular mechanisms through which MSC...

    The main objective of this study was to evaluate the influence of the products secreted by the human embryo upon the three subtypes of �-AR (�1, �2, �3). Cell cultures were developed using endometrial biopsies, taken on day 7 after ovulation, from four healthy women <35 years...

    The article reports on the result of the study conducted by Xiaoying Zheng and colleagues in evaluating the influence of one-two blastomeres lysis on further development of thawed human embrayos. The researchers claims that presence of two-lysed blastomers in the thawed day 3 embryo does not...
