Mouse artificial 'embryo' created from stem cells - BioNews


BioNews
The researchers had previously worked on a simpler structure of a mouse embryo consisting of two types of stem cells and a 3D jelly scaffold. In the new study – published in Nature Cell Biology – they used all three types of stem cells: embryonic stem ...

New Human Evolution Theory: We Won Not Because of Smarts but Because of Versatility - Haaretz


Haaretz
The evidence for any theory of human evolution is scanty in the extreme. The Denisovans are known from a handful of peripheral bones, we don't know completely where Neanderthals really ranged or when (or why) they died out – and the less confidently ...

TCR signal strength controls the differentiation of CD4 - Science


Science
T cell differentiation into effector and memory T cell subsets is influenced by T cell receptor (TCR) signals. Snook et al. examine how TCR signals influence CD4+ T cell differentiation using a panel of cloned TCRs that recognize the same MHC II ...
