Protein Distinguishes Fetal and Adult Stem Cells

Protein Distinguishes Fetal and Adult Stem Cells July 26, 2007 In a discovery that fills a critical gap in the understanding of stem cells, researchers have discovered a protein that fetal, but not adult, blood-forming stem cells need to replenish themselves. Finding regulatory pathways specific to fetal blood-forming cells could help scientists understand childhood leukemias and generate blood-forming cells for bone marrow transplants. Research published in the July 26, 2007, issue of Cell. Sean J. Morrison, Ph.D., HHMI investigator University of Michigan Medical School For the full story, go to: http://www.hhmi.org//news/morrison20070727.html ......... ZenMaster
