Potential of Reprogramming Stem Cells from Adult Tissue

Stem Cell Regeneration Center Blog, Induced pluripotent stem cells‎, Research

If stem cells are used to treat diseases such as Heart Failure and crohns, we must understand how the genes are turned on and off in our cells. By studying stem cells and gametes, we can understand how the genes are regulated by so-called epigenetic mechanisms when they give rise to new cell types. During the development from stem cell …


Epigenetic Therapy and the Control of Gene Expressions

Stem Cell Regeneration Center Glossary

Epigenetics relates to the process wherein regulatory proteins have the ability to switch genes on and off in such a way that it may be passed on at some point in the process of cellular division. Epigenetics refers to modifications in gene expression that don’t involve changes to the underlying DNA sequence. While the genetic code (DNA sequence) remains unchanged, …
