E-cigarettes Cause Stress-induced Damage In Neural Stem Cells

Electronic cigarettes, often targeted to youth and pregnant women, cause a stress response in neural stem cells, critical cells in the brain, reports a research team at the University of California, Riverside. Using cultured mouse neural stem cells, the UC Riverside researchers identified the mechanism underlying electronic cigarette-induced stem cell toxicity as “stress-induced mitochondrial hyperfusion,” […]

AKNA Protein Plays Role In Regulating Differentiation Of Neural Stem Cells

The protein Akna plays a key role in the behavior of neural stem cells, scientists at Helmholtz Zentrum München and Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich (LMU) have discovered. Led by Prof. Dr. Magdalena Götz, director of the Institute for Stem Cell Research (ISF) at Helmholtz Zentrum München and Chair of Physiological Genomics of the LMU […]
