The article discusses the 2006 discovery of a method for creating induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) by Takahashi and Shinya Yamanaka and colleagues, which won Yamanaka a Nobel Prize in 2012. Topics include the use of pluripotency to regenerate human organs and tissues, the time consumption...
- As STAP Papers are Retracted, A Riken Researcher Mulls Stalling World-First Trial. Fox, Cynthia // Bioscience Technology;7/2/2014, p1
The article reports that Riken Center for Developmental Biology (CDB) researcher Masayo Takahashi is considering suspending a part of a world-first clinical trial of induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC). Topics discussed include the "Nature" journal's retraction of Riken CDB researchers Haruko...
- Nobel for stem cell trick... // New Scientist;10/13/2012, Vol. 216 Issue 2886, p6
The article reports that cell scientists John Gurdon and Shinya Yamanaka were awarded the 2012 Nobel prize in physiology or medicine for their research into the reprogramming of mature cells into induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) which can differentiate like embryonic stem cells.
- Japan stem-cell trial stirs envy. Reardon, Sara; Cyranoski, David // Nature;9/18/2014, Vol. 513 Issue 7518, p287
The article discusses the clinical trials of induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells. It states that the iPS cells are created by using a patient's own tissue and by inserting them in an adult's DNA cells to reprogram the cells to an embryonic-like state. The therapy was pioneered by Shinya...
