A Taste of Stem Cells

Posted by on May 16th, 2013

Continuous supply of mature differentiated cells by adult stem cells is required in most of adult tissues especially those with rapid turnover rates. In recent years, using advanced cell biological methods, many studies have uncovered homeostatic mechanisms that are driven by specific tissue resident stem cells. Mammalian lingual epithelium (tongue) always had been a focus[…]

Mae West was no biologist when she told us all that “Too much of a good thing can be wonderful.”  I shudder to think how little development would take place if any one cell type was produced in large amounts.  Thankfully, stem cells and those involved in tissue regeneration understand the importance of moderation. Today’s[…]
