Gene That Improves Quality Of Reprogrammed Stem Cells Identified By Genome Institute of Singapore Scientists

In the 7 Feb. 2010 issue of the journal Nature, scientists at the Genome Institute of Singapore (GIS), report that a genetic molecule, called Tbx3, which is crucial for many aspects of early developmental processes in mammals, significantly improves the quality of stem cells that have been reprogrammed from differentiated cells. Stem cells reprogrammed from […]
