Israeli teams grows heart cells and insulin producing cells from human embryonic stem cells

...The cells passed all the tests with flying colors, demonstrating that they are indeed early-stage cardiomyocytes. It seems likely that if placed in an adult human heart, these cells would produce mature human heart muscle cells, Gepstein says. The next step in moving towards clinical applications, such as injecti...

Millennium's LDP(PS)-341 inhibits growth and induces death of cancer cells, appears to overcome chemotherapy resistance

...entation of preclinical and clinical study results demonstrating that an investigational proteasome inhibitor, LDP-341 (formerly PS-341), the first in a new class of anti-cancer agents, is active against multiple myeloma. The latest findings were presented at the 42nd Annual Meeting of the American Society of Hem...

Auxin takes root

.... Finally, NAC1 was linked to the auxin pathway by demonstrating that NAC1 is regulated by auxin, and that the effect of auxin on root formation is mediated by NAC1. NAC1 can even compensate for the lack of another gene, tir1, which has previously been established as a mediator of auxin signaling. This is the firs...
