...of all proteins made by the body). In “Amaze balls: Testicles site of most diverse proteins,” Andy Coghlan noted one unexpected result: The proteins in our cells and tissues are...

The Cures Are Inside You

reported. It appears that the stem cells could be embryonic or induced pluripotent stem cells; either way, the stem cells appear able to create the pancreatic beta cells necessary to...

The Machinery Behind the Senses

There’s a lot of physical work our eyes, ears, and brain cells perform to support our perceptions of the world. Blind man’s bluff: There’s only a small area of sharp...

Robots Imitate Life

...Reeve was campaigning primarily for embryonic stem cell research, but this article says nothing about it. The focus is entirely on bionics – technologies imitating nature. Reach out and touch:...

Findings Spur New Ethical Challenges

adult cells to their embryonic state, called induced pluripotent stem cells. A paper in Science Magazine appears to treat embryonic stem cells (EC) and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC) equally,...

Body Wonders at the Cellular Level

...information: Not all nerve cells excite other cells; some inhibit the activity of others. This means that the activity in a network can oscillate around a certain level of activity...

Cell's Molecular Machines Arouse Fascination

stem cells. It serves as the executioner of an elegant pathway that prevents stem cells from changing into other cell types. The protein does this by acting like a garbage...

Secularists Adrift with Embryonic Ethics

cells are better than iPSCs. The researchers claim that embryonic stem cells are the gold standard; cloned cells (somatic cell nuclear transfer), “in which genetic material from an adult cell...

Sperm Cells Gain Respect

Millions of tadpole-like sperm cells rush to fertilize one egg. They deserve more respect than they often get. They look kind of adventurous in a way– sperm cells, like marathoners...

Secular Scientists Continue to Push Leftist Agendas

...made men what they are? Embryonic stem cells: Both Science Magazine and Nature were happy about a vote by the European Union to block a large contingent of citizens who...

Adult Stem Cells Continue to Offer Hope

phrase “somatic cell nuclear transfer” used to wave red flags about the tainted practice of putting nuclei from embryonic cells into body cells (somatic cells), thereby initiating a process of...

Your Cells Work for You

...bacteria know how to survive. (Live Science) Surprise: those precious multipotent stem cells scientists want from embryos are already present in many of your body tissues. (PhysOrg) A student discovered...

Stem Cell Revolution Leap Forward? Debunked!

for renewed discussion of the uses of stem cell technologies. We should make a clear-eyed start on it now. Most stem cell articles mention that work with embryonic stem cells...
