Gene profiling reveals the essence of 'stemness'

...ault model' we proposed, which is that the default fate of embryonic stem cells is to become neurons." Comparing stem cells with their differentiated counterparts revealed genetic differences that will offer clues to developing techniques to induce stem cells to differentiate into adult cells, said Melto...

Crucial gene found for embryonic stem cell maintenance

...ing of the genetic factors that regulate stem cell fate and preserve the delicate balance between the maintenance of a pluripotent cell population and the differentiation of more specialized cell types. In the October 15th issue of Genes & Development, Dr. Patricia Labosky and colleagues add Foxd3 to the...

Foxd3 gene allows stem cells to remain stem cells

... embryo," said Labosky. "These genes determine the fate of cells by turning on or off other genes in response to signals in the embryo." Foxd3 joins previously identified genes, such as Oct4 , Fgf4 , and Sox2 , which control the pluripotency of embryonic stem cells in the early stages of embryogenesi...

Popular weed killer feminizes native leopard frogs across Midwest

... now engaged in studies to determine the ultimate fate of these feminized tadpoles. "In my opinion, this is an unacceptable risk." Hayes and his colleagues sampled leopard frog tadpoles in eight separate ponds, ditches, rivers and streams in the Midwest during the summer of 2001 and found feminized male ...

Observing proteins and cells in the wild

...ing approach would allow researchers to study cell fate either outside the body in culture, or in whole developing organisms. "With quantum dots, you could follow each cell in the worm C. elegans continuously from its birth in an embryo to its final destination in an adult three and a half days later," s...

Food for thought: Cells dine on their own brains to stay fit and trim

.... The only part of the cell thought to escape this fate is the nucleus, which is as essential to a cell as our brains are to us. Biologists had always thought that taking a bite out of the nucleus would effectively end a cell's life. Goldfarb found that when the yeast cell wants to recycle some of the mac...

'The end of the world' has already begun, UW scientists say

... years away, but people really should consider the fate of our world and have a realistic understanding of where we are going," said UW astrophysicist Donald Brownlee. "We live in a fabulous place at a fabulous time. It's a healthy thing for people to realize what a treasure this is in space and time, and...

Enzyme controls 'good cholesterol'

...L, he said. He and his colleagues are studying the fate of patients with this type of enzyme to determine whether it is beneficial or not. Once they determine whether the variant form of HDL is good or bad, it can become a target for drug developers who will attempt to manipulate levels of "good" cholest...

Neural development in time and space

...mplicated earlier in the spatial control of neural fate determination. "Identifying new roles to this bunch of old proteins is intriguing" says Dr. Ericson, "since it helps to demystify the time aspect of neural development and further indicates that the temporal and spatial control of neuronal differenti...

Coots can count

...nomenon. Lyon and his field assistants tracked the fate of every egg in more than 400 coot nests, checking the nests every day. Because no bird can lay more than one egg per day, parasitism was readily detected. In addition, coot eggs laid by different parents can often be distinguished on the basis of co...

The roots of human behavior? AAAS and The Hastings Center host a public meeting

...t a print out of one's genome is not equivalent to fate with respect to behavior and behavioral disorders. It is only probabilistic information -- that can be readily overinterpreted and misused," he says. The meeting, which is funded by the National Institutes of Health, has grown out of a multi-year col...
