Discredited Pancreas Regeneration Hypothesis is Making a Comeback

News   Dec 05, 2018 | Original story from the Diabetes Research Institute

Emerging Evidence for the Pancreatic Progenitor Cell Hypothesis

Human pancreatic section showing the epithelium of a large pancreatic duct harboring progenitor-like cells. These cells are characterized by expression of PDX1 (blue) and the BMP-7 receptor ALK3 (red), but not the ductal marker carbonic anhydrase II (CAII, green). When sorted and cultured in defined conditions, these cells are BMP-7 expandable and exhibit multipotent differentiation potential. Image credit: Diabetes Research Institute



Rearranging Chromosomes – Does It Affect Their Function?


Molecular biologists long thought that domains in the genome’s 3D organization control how genes are expressed. After studying highly rearranged chromosomes in fruit flies, researchers now reveal that while this is the case for some genes, their results challenge the generality of this for many others.


Vaccine Strategy Boosts T-Cell Therapy


In a study of mice, the researchers found that they could completely eliminate solid tumors in 60 percent of the animals that were given T-cell therapy along with the booster vaccination. Engineered T cells on their own had almost no effect.


Gaining Insight Into Sun-induced DNA Damage and Cell Repair


A team has published a breakthrough article that provides a better understanding of the dynamic process by which sunlight-induced DNA damage is recognized by the molecular repair machinery in cells as needing repair.
