Adult stem cells lack key pluripotency regulator

October 10, 2007

The protein Oct4, which helps to maintain embryonic stem cells, has been shown to be virtually absent in adult stem cells.

Scientists identify embryonic stem cells by appearance alone

August 27, 2007

Scientist can now identify pluripotent stem cells based solely on their physical appearance.

Reprogrammed fibroblasts identical to embryonic stem cells

June 6, 2007

Researchers have manipulated mouse fibroblasts and turned them into cells with such developmental elasticity that they appear identical to embryonic stem cells.

Rudolf Jaenisch receives Max Delbrück Medal
