that used a wormwood extract. The medical community soon discovered that the extract, artemisinin, worked well against malaria, and it is currently used for that purpose throughout Asia and Africa. Artemisinin combats malaria because the malaria para...
Scientists rid stem cell culture of key animal cells
...the University of Wisconsin-Madison have crafted a recipe
that allows researchers to grow human embryonic stem cells in the absence of mouse-derived "feeder" cells, long thought to be a source of potential contamination for the therapeutically promising cells. The new findings, appear today (Feb. 17) in the...
Breakthrough in stem cell research
...scles and bones," he said. "We need to establish a recipe
to derive each of these from human embryonic stem cells, so they can be transplanted straight into the affected area of a patient. "The insulin-producing cells, which are derived from the layer which also forms the gut and liver are the holy grail f...
New study explains process leading to many proteins from one gene

for a molecule of messenger RNA which, in turn, carries a blueprint for the creation of a particular protein. Any mutation in the gene could affect the production of the protein. But recent studies have shown that protein production can also be manip...
