Immature Cells Zap Around Before Settling Down

Posted by on November 28th, 2018

The story is based on the paper Mechanosignalling via integrins directs fate decisions of pancreatic progenitors, published in Nature, 28 November 2018 Stem cells are already being used in combating previously untreatable diseases. Nevertheless, stem cells are not delivering their full potential because the production of specific cell types from stem cells cannot yet be managed. Researchers[…]

DUCTS IN THE PANCREAS FORM SIMILAR TO RIVER BEDS

Posted by on August 23rd, 2018

When people digest food, the flow of fluids and digestive enzymes to the gut is critical. Until recently, researchers had marvelled at the incredibly complex system of ducts that transports a stream of enzymes and mucus from the pancreas to the gut. Astonishingly, a research project led by Professor Grapin-Botton has revealed that the ducts[…]
