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,” […]
