Peptide bonds The Building Block of Protein Synthesis

Stem Cell Regeneration Center Glossary

While peptide bonds are fundamental to protein structure, their direct relationship with stem cells lies in the proteins these cells produce, which are crucial for their functions and differentiation. What is a Peptide Bond? Peptide bonds are the chemical bonds that link amino acids to form proteins. On the other hand, stem cells are undifferentiated cells capable of giving rise …

Zombie Cells Explained: Senescence to Senolytic Therapy

Stem Cell Regeneration Center Blog, Glossary

Zombie cells, also called senescent cells, are non-dividing cells that accumulate in the body due to stress or damage, resisting normal apoptotic pathways. These cells contribute to aging and various diseases by secreting pro-inflammatory cytokines and growth factors, known as the SASP, which disrupts tissue function and promotes chronic inflammation. Advances in clinical research and stem cell therapies targeting removing …

Astrocytes can gain neural stem cell properties after brain injury

Stem Cell Regeneration Center Blog

New research shows that specific types of brain cells become active after brain injuries and exhibit properties similar to those of neural stem cells. Astrocyte plasticity might correlate with the upregulation of the Galectin 3 protein, which may significantly contribute to discovery of additional biomarkers. The study discovered that a specific protein regulates these cells and could be a target …
