Cells Derived from Pluripotent Stem Cells are Developmentally Immature and May Pose Challenges in Clinical Use, Disease Modeling

BSCRC members William Lowry, Hanna Mikkola, Michaela Patterson, David Chan and colleagues have discovered that three types of cells derived from human embryonic stem cells and induced pluripotent stem cells are similar to each other, but are much more developmentally immature than previously thought when compared to those same cell types taken directly from human tissue.

BSCRC Researchers Uncover Reason Why the Adult Human Heart Cannot Regenerate Itself

BSCRC member W. Robb MacLellan and colleagues uncovered for the first time why adult human cardiac myocytes have lost their ability to proliferate, perhaps explaining why the human heart has little regenerative capacity.

The study, done in cell lines and mice, may lead to methods of reprogramming a patient’s own cardiac myocytes within the heart itself to create new muscle to repair damage, said Dr. Robb MacLellan, a researcher with the Eli and Edythe Broad Center of Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research at UCLA and senior author of the study.
