(Antioxid Redox Signal, 2016-03-01)
AIMS: The differentiation of embryonic stem (ES) cells into energetically efficient cardiomyocytes contributes to functional cardiac repair and is envisioned to ameliorate progressive degenerative cardiac diseases. Advanced ...
Angiopoietin receptor TEK mutations underlie primary congenital glaucoma with variable expressivity.
(The Journal of clinical investigation, 2016-07)
Primary congenital glaucoma (PCG) is a devastating eye disease and an important cause of childhood blindness worldwide. In PCG, defects in the anterior chamber aqueous humor outflow structures of the eye result in elevated ...
Pleiotrophin regulates the ductular reaction by controlling the migration of cells in liver progenitor niches.
OBJECTIVE: The ductular reaction (DR) involves mobilisation of reactive-appearing duct-like cells (RDC) along canals of Hering, and myofibroblastic (MF) differentiation of hepatic stellate cells (HSC) in the space of Disse. ...
