Alterations in Copper Homeostasis in Ischemic Heart Disease

An article published in Experimental Biology and Medicine (Volume 243, Issue 9, May 2018) answers a long-standing clinical question regarding elevated blood copper levels in patients with myocardial ischemia (http://journals.sagepub.com/doi/full/10.1177/1535370218773055). The study, led by Dr. Y. James Kang in the…

Deep Learning: A Superhuman Way to Look at Cells

It’s harder than you might think to look at a microscope image of an untreated cell and identify its features. To make cell characteristics visible to the human eye, scientists normally have to use chemicals that can kill the very…

Scientists Learn How to Avoid a Roadblock When Reprogramming Cells

Over a decade ago, Shinya Yamanaka and Kazutoshi Takahashi made a discovery that would revolutionize biomedical research and trigger the field of regenerative medicine. They learned how to reprogram human adult cells into cells that behave like embryonic stem cells.…

Supporting Cells in the Heart Contribute to Cardiac Disease

Supporting Cells in the Heart Contribute to Cardiac Disease

An article published in Experimental Biology and Medicine (Volume 243, Issue 7, April, 2018) reports that supporting cells in the heart, known as fibroblasts, are selectively activated by factors present in heart disease. The study, led by Dr. Megan McCain,…

Scientists Fix Genetic Risk Factor for Alzheimer's Disease in Human Brain Cells

Scientists Fix Genetic Risk Factor for Alzheimer's Disease in Human Brain Cells

Using human brain cells, scientists at the Gladstone Institutes discovered the cause of — and a potential solution for — the primary genetic risk factor for Alzheimer’s disease, a gene called apoE4. Having one copy of the apoE4 gene more…

Cell Therapy Could Improve Brain Function for Alzheimer's Disease

Cell Therapy Could Improve Brain Function for Alzheimer's Disease

Like a great orchestra, your brain relies on the perfect coordination of many elements to function properly. And if one of those elements is out of sync, it affects the entire ensemble. In Alzheimer’s disease, for instance, damage to specific…

Unlocking a Cell's Potential to Regenerate the Heart

Unlocking a Cell's Potential to Regenerate the Heart

Some organisms have a remarkable capacity for regenerating tissue. If a fish or salamander suffers heart damage, for instance, their cells are able to divide and successfully repair the injured organ. Imagine if you could do the same. In the…
