Mitochondria Shown to Trigger Cell Ageing
An international team of scientists has for the first time shown that mitochondria, the batteries of the cells, are essential for ageing.
Cancer Cells Kill Off Healthy Neighbours
Cancer cells create space to grow by killing off surrounding healthy cells, according to UK researchers working with fruit flies.
Editing of Embryos Approved in the UK
The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) has approved a research application from the Francis Crick Institute to use new "gene editing" techniques on human embryos.
Microbes Take Their Vitamins
Scientists exploit organisms' needs in order to track 'vitamin mimics' in bacteria.
Machine Learning Uncovers Unknown Bacterial Features
Technique robustly identified characteristic gene expression patterns in response to antibiotics, low oxygen conditions.
CRISPR-Cas9 Gene Editing Advances Again
UC Berkeley researchers have made a major improvement in CRISPR-Cas9 technology that achieves an unprecedented success rate of 60 percent when replacing a short stretch of DNA with another.
Disrupting Cell’s Supply Chain Freezes Cancer Virus
When the cancer-causing Epstein-Barr virus moves into a B-cell of the human immune system, it tricks the cell into rapidly making more copies of itself, each of which will carry the virus.
Why Do Some Infections Persist?
In preparing for the possibility of an antibiotic onslaught, some bacterial cultures adopt an all-for-one/one-for-all strategy that would make a socialist proud, University of Vermont researchers have found.
ASCB: A CELLebration of Cell Biology
The last major congress of the year, ASCB is less a platform for launching new products, but one for confirming and consolidating the trends that have emerged over the past 12 months.
Squeezing Cells into Stem Cells
EPFL scientists have developed a new method that helps cells turn in usable stem cells. The new approach involves “squeezing” cells with a gel, and paves the way for large-scale production of stem cells for medical purposes.

ESGRO-2i Medium: Inhibitor-Based Serum-free Medium for ES and iPS Cell Culture

Millipore

In this study, scientists explore the use of inhibitor-based, serum-free and feeder-free ESGRO-2i medium (EMD Millipore) for culturing mES cells and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells).

The discovery that the inhibition of differentiation inducing signals is critical for mES cell self renewal even in absence of the cytokine Leukemia Inhibitory Factor (LIF) led to a new definition of the ground state of ES cell self-renewal1. Inhibitors that block MAPK/Erk pathway, in combination with the glycogen synthase kinase 3 (GSK3) inhibitor, protect mES cells from differentiation-inducing signals, allowing for self-renewal in serum-free medium2,3. However, mES cells maintain their LIF responsiveness.
